Real Gardens for Real People
NORTH SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) December 4, 2005
The 5th annual Master Gardener “Real Gardens for Real People” tour will be held Saturday, March 25, 2006 in the North Scottsdale/Cave Creek area. This self-guided tour is open to the public from 9 am to 4 pm.
Five inspiring Master Gardener gardens will be showcased, as well as a school garden. Tickets are $ l5 per person and include admission to the six gardens plus on-site seminars and workshops. For information or tickets contact the Maricopa County Cooperative Extension garden tour hotline at 602.470.1556 ext. 1017 or visit our website at http://www.maricopamastergardener.org.
This is not the standard tour of professionally landscaped gardens. These landscapes have been designed, planted and maintained by Master Gardeners and provide a great opportunity to get inspiration from some unique gardens. There are colorful courtyards, novel garden art, unusual plants that grow well in our area, innovative vegetable gardens, wonderful water features and much more. In addition, plants in all gardens will be labeled and an extensive plant list for each garden is included in the brochure. Gardening experts will be on hand at each garden to answer questions and provide educational information. A Garden Boutique, located at the school, will have a variety of specialty items for sale.
The Mission of the Maricopa County Master Gardener Program is to teach people to select, place and care for plants in an environmentally responsible manner based on research specific to the low desert. Our “Real Gardens for Real People” tour shares information with the public on gardening principles adapted to our low-desert landscapes which can save time, energy and money.
Persons with a disability may request a reasonable accommodation such as a sign language interpreter, by contacting 602.470.8086, ext. 311. Requests should be made as early as possible to allow time to arrange the accommodation.
