Nursery Tours Tuesdays at 10 am – Registration Required.
Join Edge of the Woods staff for a guided tour of demonstration gardens at the nursery. Our gardens are certified as Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation and also as a Monarch Way-Stations by Monarch Watch.
We’ll scout the gardens for inspiration, butterflies, garden visitors and other surprises that present themselves to us. Attendees will learn about the importance of native plants to our eco-system. The tour is informal and allows time for questions. This is a great way to be introduced to native plants and to our nursery.
The tour lasts approximately an hour. We accept only 5 people per tour. The ensures that everyone can hear the tour leader and than there is time to answer all the questions from participants.
If you are bringing friends or others along, please note: groups larger than 5 — please make special arrangements.
These tours are designed for individuals who would like to learn more about native plants and our nursery. Tours for groups (garden clubs, school groups etc) can be held by arrangement; a fee may apply. Please call or email us to inquire.
To allow for time for questions and so you can closely follow our tour guide, registration for tours is limited to five people. Please sign up in advance to save your spot! If you find you can not attend after you have registered, please cancel your reservation to make room for someone else.
