The community's longest-running educational garden tour returns, Saturday, May 20, 2023! Since 1929, Club members and residents have opened their own gardens in public tours to help visitors learn more about ornamental, vegetable and herb gardening, natural and functional hardscape, water management, and lighting. The Tour offers the public's greatest opportunity to enjoy Tulsa's private residential gardens in full spring splendor. Behind-the-scenes or sneak previews of public gardens have been featured, also.
Tour tickets allow entry to all four gardens. Tour ticket is redeemed for Tour Guide at first garden for Tour details incl brief descriptions of each garden, along with Patron recognition*. $15 Advance tickets are available via Eventbrite through 3 pm, Friday, May 19. $20 Tour Day tickets may be purchased at the first featured garden visited on Saturday, May 20. The Tour is self guided for visitors to move garden-to-garden as preferred.
Presented by generous garden/homeowners, Club members and Patrons, the Tour fulfills National Garden Clubs, Inc. objectives to educate the public and advance the art of gardening, horticulture, landscape design, floral design, and environmental sciences.
Every effort is made to comply with local ordinances and Tulsa County Health Department recommendations to ensure a healthy and safe experience.
Proceeds benefit Tulsa Garden Club formal and informal gardening education projects, including Tulsa Garden Center, OSU horticulture and landscape architecture, Oklahoma Gardening, TCC's Second Chance Program in horticulture with Conner Correctional Center inmates, along with other local and global gardening education partners.
Garden/homeowners and their teams work for months (sometimes years!) to prepare their green spaces--of all sizes!--for Tulsa Garden Club's Tour. Garden/Homeowners and their teams are recognized during the exclusive pre-Tour reception.
