The tour is presented by the Curry County Master Gardener's Association and is their primary fund raiser for the year. Proceeds are used to support Master Gardener educational projects throughout the year - including the new Kalmiopsis School Garden Project in Brookings. The Kalmiopsis School Garden will be included on the tour this year, along with the private gardens, so you can see first hand what the Master Gardeners are doing for our kids.
Master Gardeners are trained by OSU Extension Service faculty and industry professionals, and in turn pass on sustainable, science-based gardening information to the community through clinics and other educational programs.
In each of seven private gardens on the August 1 tour, local PBAA Artists will be demonstrating their craft and offering art for sale.
Here's a sneak preview of a couple of scenes you'll see on this year's Coastal Garden and Art Tour. Tour Tickets are only $10 and include a map to all gardens.
