8th Annual Vallejo Garden Tour

"A Community of Gardens" is the theme for the 8th annual Vallejo Garden Tour, set for Sunday, May 15 from 10:00 to 3:00. The tour will feature eight local gardens, featuring beautifully landscaped private homes and two Community Gardens - the Loma Vista Farm and the Vallejo Community Garden at Mare Island. The Tour also features a delicious buffet luncheon served at the Museum from noon to 3:00. Tickets for the tour are $30 general public and $25 for Museum members. All tickets are $35 on the day of the Tour. Tickets are available at the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum, 734 Marin Street, and at Zoey June Gift & Garden, 1426 Tennessee Street in Vallejo. All proceeds benefit the Museum.

Whether growing vegetables to feed the family or flowers to feed the soul, gardens enrich our lives and promote community through sharing. With the choice of this year's theme, the Garden Tour Committee hopes to inspire Vallejo citizens  to become more involved in their environment and community through their gardens.
