There is something for everyone on the tour. You will have the opportunity to see a variety of different gardening styles including raised beds, hoop houses and a greenhouse. The tour features both new and experienced gardeners using a variety of innovative techniques such as cover crops, pollinator plants and low maintenance designs. You’ll get to see xeriscaping, native Montana wildflowers, bird habitat and a butterfly garden. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about the history and methods of making sauerkraut and how to use recycled materials in the garden. You will get to visit with gardeners who have a passion for working with soil and plants and their trials and tribulations along the way.
Extra precautions have been put into place this year due to the pandemic to protect our garden hosts and tourgoers. Each garden will have hand sanitizer and participants are asked to use it before entering the property. Please remember to social distance whenever possible. Masks are highly encouraged, especially for those in the high-risk population or in smaller gardens or yards where it is difficult to social distance.
Hope to see you on the Backyards of Broadwater!
