Come see how Watertown’s Life-Friendly Garden Tour greets spring!

It’s time to greet spring with Watertown’s 19th Life-Friendly Garden Tour!

The warm weather is earlier than ever this year. This spring, the Watertown Life-Friendly Garden Tour will also be earlier than before. We invite you to come visit our gardens a week before Mother’s Days, on Sunday, May 7.

A chemical-free growing space, however humble, is a welcoming place for beleaguered honey-bees, bumblebees, butterflies, moths and other important pollinators! Twice a year, gardeners all around Watertown who grow beautiful gardens without artificial pesticides or fertilizers, offer a chance for you to visit. Ask questions, share hints, have fun!

Any gardener who has not used chemical fertilizers or pesticides for at least a year is eligible to participate as a garden host. Hosts will receive copies of the map to share and a flag to display on the day of the tour. This is your chance to see how beautiful a garden can be without the use of chemicals.

This self-guided tour is free and open to the public. A map will be available after sign-ups are complete.

This event is co-sponsored by Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice and the Environment and Watertown Community Gardens.

The map is available here.
