Earth Day Event- Picton Garden Tour: Beyond the Lawn

April 27 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Did you know that the County has changed their bylaw to support local efforts to naturalize lawn?

The Picton Garden Tour, taking place during PEC Earth Week, features six gardens that showcase low-cost lawn naturalization design ideas to enhance biodiversity, recharge groundwater, and add seasonal beauty to our community.

The tour is a joint initiative hosted by the County of Prince Edward, the County Garden Club, Victoria Taylor Landscape Architect | VTLA StudioDropseed Native Plant NurseryWild by DesignBase31, and private garden owners.  Each garden will have a host present to answer your questions and to share details about the design process, costs and plantings.

Visit the gardens at your own pace or in any order, or register to take the County Transit tour bus (space is limited). Use the form to register for either the tour bus or the self-guided option. Once you register, you will receive a map showing the locations of the gardens.

Participants may enter a draw to win a prize from Dropseed Native Plant Nursery (Opening May 2024). Two winners will receive a voucher for five native plants (4” pots) each.

The event is free and will take place rain or shine.
