Organizing a Garden Tour

Celebrate and promote healthier yards with a tour! It isn’t difficult to set up one, and it is a great way to connect and have fun. You can do a small tour in your street or neighborhood, or invite the whole town to participate. If you contact us we will be happy to help you set you up. Here below you find a summary of the things we think are useful for the tour.

Helpful tips

  • Ask local environmental organizations for participation
  • Ask landscapers and nurseries for participation
  • Use social media and create a mailing list to send out invitations

Organizing a tour takes time but shouldn’t cost a lot of money. In our experience, the only real investment is the yard sign. Try to find a sponsor and forgo a date on the sign, so you can use the signs again in the future. For our customizable designs for handouts, flyers and the yard sign click here>
