I have never attended a garden tour, but lately I have found myself more interested. This sounds like an excellent tour with a price tag that is not too bad. If you happen to attend, please let us know how it was in the comments.

If you’re anywhere near Santa Barbara this Saturday, April 16, plan to join Santa Barbara Botanic Garden’s first-ever native plant tour.

Cosponsored by The Channel Islands Chapter of California Native Plant Society, the tour will get you into private gardens from Thousand Oaks to Goleta.

Cost for the self-guided tour is $15 for members of CNPS or SBBG or $25 for non-members. The fee gets you directions to each location and includes admission to Santa Barbara Botanic Garden any day during California Native Plant Week, April 17–23, plus nursery discounts that can help you jump-start your own native garden.
