In a series of live garden visits passionate garden owners and the talented designers of the Bay Area’s most beautiful and inspiring landscapes will take us on private tours of their gardens. In addition, this year you can learn about the must-have plants for your garden, how to create a pollinator pathway, how to garden for birds, butterflies and bees, which native street trees you might want in front of your home, and more!

In addition, a Bay Area home with solar panels, a heat pump for heating and cooling the house, an induction range, and more will be toured.
