Inside Austin Gardens Tour
Saturday, October 20, 2012, 9am-4pm
http://www.insideaustingardens.org

Join us for the 2012 Inside Austin Gardens tour, showcasing 7 gardens where vegetables and ornamentals not only get along but elevate each other to new heights of design. Presented by the Travis County Master Gardeners in cooperation with the Texas Agrlife Extension Service in Travis County, the tour takes place Saturday, October 20, 2012 from 9:00am until 4:00pm. Tour includes gardens to explore, educational talks, and plant and book sales. Tour information can be found at http://www.insideaustingardens.org.

With water-wise gardening techniques in mind, seven gardens will showcase ways to incorporate food and water for all the visitors to the garden: bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, and birds - as well as people and pets. The gardens feature herbs, vegetables, citrus and fruit trees, as well as heirloom roses mixed with Texas-tough, drought-tolerant native and adapted plants. All gardens will feature water conservation in a variety of methods including rainwater collection systems, drip irrigation, mulches and soil composition.
As always, the tour will include educational seminars and other fun activities at each stop. Learn what vegetables to grow and why, let the children eat rainbows, or hear the thought-provoking story of the American Indian medicine wheel. Learn practical methods to add edibles to your landscape, how to eat the fruits of your labors, and recipes to spice things up with herbs! Books, plants and t-shirts will be available at each garden.

Purchase advance tickets online at a discounted price, or at regular price at each garden on tour day. Further information including seminar topics and schedules, maps and ticket prices-- can be found at http://www.insideaustingardens.org. So join us on the tour and help keep Austin edible and blooming.
