Need some garden inspiration?
Follow the road to the “Gardens of Folsom” 2018 garden tour!
You will see examples of diverse gardens – including both plantings and hardscapes to get your gardening creative juices flowing. This years’ tour features some unique gardens filled with lush textures and colors, patios, swimming pools and fountains, kitchens and outdoor rooms. There’s even a putting green, Folsom Bulldog firepit, and wood pizza ovens. The beautiful gardens range from functional – where everything is useful, providing food or comfort, to entertaining- where there is not just gardening to do but games to play and things to learn.
Visit the plant sale at the Guiseppe Murer House and Learning Center. Add plants grown by the Folsom Garden Club volunteers and enjoy baked goods they made for the ever popular bake sale. Plus, visit with Club members, artists painting in the gardens and Master Gardeners who are ready to answer any questions.
Tickets are $20 for attendees 16 and over, and include a descriptive brochure and a map of the tour route. The tour will be held “Rain or Shine” with no refunds. Tour details and tickets can be purchased at www.folsomgarden.org, or call 916-205-3720.
