Nursery and Demonstration Garden Tours
Join Edge of the Woods staff for a guided tour of our 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 also have a research orchard of pure American Chestnut.
Each week brings a new delight of blooms, insects, birds and other wonders of nature. 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 our nursery.
Tours are held Tuesday mornings at 10:00 AM and last approximately 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the group and number of questions. Please sign up for the tours in advance so we know how many people to expect. A maximum of 5 people will be admitted for each tour. This ensures that everyone can hear the tour leader and that there is time to answer all the questions from participants.
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.
