How it works:

The Welcome Center, located in the Discovery Fellowship/Catalyst parking lot accessible from Hayward Avenue, will open at 9:30 on the day of the Garden Tour. After a $5.00 donation at the Welcome Center, participants will be given a tour button and a map of the participating gardens. Ages 12 and under are free. Proceeds go to supporting future Tours, projects that foster community in Manette, and local nonprofits.

Information about features in each garden are provided in the map/brochure and Welcome Center volunteers can also provide helpful tips for selecting the gardens to visit. For everyone’s safety, we will be following CDC and Washington State COVID-19 guidelines. This may include asking people to maintain social distancing and/or requiring masks be worn in the gardens. Please do not bring dogs into the gardens.
