Guests will experience creative blends of perennials, annuals, native plants and vegetables located in six private gardens in the Prescott area’s varied landscapes.
All gardens will include professional discussions of the techniques used, as well as local artists and musicians to add ambience to each garden setting.
On the day of the tour, the program with maps and wristband entry IDs will be available between 8 and 11 a.m. in front of the Yavapai Performing Arts Center at Yavapai College off Sheldon Street in Prescott.
