If you're interested in increasing your home's curb appeal through landscaping and gardening, the 2nd annual Hennepin County Master Gardener Learning Gardens Tour happens on July 11 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm! Through the event, you can visit ten beautiful gardens designed and maintained by Master Gardeners, gaining inspiration and information on the latest gardening techniques along the way.
Each garden has a different theme and demonstration. Themes include a fairytale garden, a low maintenance garden, urban and woodland retreat gardens, a farmhouse in the city, container gardening, a sanctuary garden, and a shade garden with a labyrinth.
Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer gardening questions and will conduct interactive demonstrations at 10, 12, and 2 p.m. on a wide range of topics. Tour gardens and educational opportunities tend to emphasize sustainability and productivity. One demonstration of note that this tour will provide is information on how to build a rain garden.
