Welcome to the 2014 Inside Austin Gardens Tour!
This year’s theme is Gardens Eclectic ATX because of the vast diversity of offerings. Featured are 5 Travis County Master Gardeners Association members’ private gardens plus the public Demonstration Garden at the Travis County AgriLife Extension Office.
Each garden stands on its own to demonstrate various aspects of gardening in Central Texas. You’ll see vegetable gardening on a rocky slope, innumerable examples illustrating the principles of landscape design, extensive use of drip irrigation, a Texas-tough perennial garden and examples of structural elements made from recycled materials. Every garden has an educational table to answer questions and explain principles.
Always open to the public free of charge is the Demonstration Garden. Here children’s activities will span the day, books are for sale and learning opportunities abound.
Come, look, learn….have a blast!
Tickets for the tour are $20 (or $5 for each garden) and can be purchased at any of the gardens on tour day. There is no admission charge for children under 16. Tickets will be available at online soon.
