The Master Gardener Foundation of Clallam County is proud to announce the return of the popular outdoor event, “Petals & Pathways Home Garden Tour” on June 24th from 10 am till 4 pm. Bring your sun hat, plans for lunch and comfortable walking shoes, and spend a Saturday touring some of Sequim s six most beautiful gardens. This year, the gardens are located in the rolling hills of happy valley to the big sky prairie lands.
All the home gardens that have been selected have parking, accessibility, diversity in design, and creativity.
These gardens feature greenhouse-growing ideas, vertical plantings, sacred spaces for reflection and relaxation, plant varieties that excel in our Sequim environment and all the factors that our Master Gardener Selection Committee looks for every year.
All the gardens will have 7-10 Master Gardener volunteers to help with questions on plant identification. A map will be printed on the tickets for this self-guided tour. Tickets are $15 in advance at local vendors and $20 on the day of the tour.
Tickets can be purchased May 14 until June 24 at these local vendors:
