Our 2016 Native Plant Garden Tour drew well over 1,000 visitors into 41 spectacular gardens, each planted with at least 50% native plants. Thanks to all of you who bought tickets and toured. Congratulations and thanks to the garden hosts and talented designers who generously opened their gardens to the public, and to the hard-working TPF docents (nearly 100 strong!) who greeted visitors and answered questions.

The 2017 tour application is up. We’re looking for gardens throughout L.A. County and encourage you to take photos of your gardens now, in spring bloom; they may be used for the 2017 tour website. (Wide shots, that is full frontal garden pics, are most appreciated.)
The Foundation sends enormous appreciation to the local agencies, businesses and organizations, including these major sponsors, that helped make the tour possible. See a complete list of sponsors.
