This is a delightful way to spend a day - or even part of a day. You are invited into people's front and back yards to experience how they have used native plants to encourage pollinators, compost and mulch to enhance soil, water-wise systems to keep plants healthy while reducing clean water use, turning former lawns into vegetable gardens and more. It's very personal and inspiring in many ways. Some yards are tiny postage stamp gardens while other are expanses of land. And it's just plain fun to wander from home to home and town to town to see what people are doing.
Along the way there are demonstrations, workshops and plant sales if you are inclined. register and enjoy!
Rockin' Homesteads Tour
For those of you that would like to delve a little deeper Daily Acts are offering theRockin' Homestead Tour! Three concurrent guided tours in Cotati, Petaluma, and Windsor on Saturday May 13 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
A few of the gardens are featured in the afternoon on the Eco-Friendly Garden Tour but most can only be viewed via this special guided tour option. Rain tanks watering vegetable beds, graywater irrigating fruit trees, an understory of low water use insectary plants, a thick layer of water-retaining mulch on the old lawn area, beautiful rain gardens, and chickens and bees buzzing around the whole thing!
