See and sample beautiful home and community gardens. Learn new tips. Leave these backyards feeling inspired.
Here's how it works:
- THE SELF-GUIDED TOUR: You buy your tickets. We give you a map. Between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., you and your crew take a self-guided tour of local kitchen gardens in the Black Dirt, West Milford, and Skylands regions. You choose your route.
- THE BUS TOUR (includes lunch): Let us take the wheel. Hop on the Dirt mag school bus with our garden geeks. From 10 am - 5 pm, we'll take you from one veggie patch to the next on a tour led by our editor. A vegetarian lunch is included in your ticket price. The bus leaves from Dirt's offices at 20 West Ave. in Chester, NY at 10 am. and returns at approximately 5 pm.
- After touring the gardens, everyone meets up at farm-to-table restaurant Mohawk House at 6 p.m. to enjoy live music, top-notch hors d'oeuvres, draft beer, and wine (all included in the ticket price).
Everyone votes for their favorite gardens and prizes are awarded to the winners. We all celebrate.
