Sustainable Belmont is hosting the 7th annual Green Belmont Garden Tour on Sunday, Sept. 10, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. come rain or shine.
The free, self-guided garden tour highlights a variety of safe and healthy organic garden practices.
- gardeners in Belmont have changed practices after last year’s drought.
- Learn about hearty perennial fruits, annual vegetables, and landscaping plants.
- See different composting methods firsthand. Talk with the gardeners about all their growing habits.
This year participants can enter a chance to win a rain barrel or composter at each garden you visit. The more gardens you visit the better chances of winning! The raffle is an effort to help reach out to the Belmont community on issues of sustainability and to encourage healthy yards care in Belmont. Those garden viewers already on Sustainable’s mailing list may still enter the raffle and residency is not a requirement.
Garden tour maps can be picked up from the Beech Street Center, 266 Beech St. on Sept. 10, from 11 to 3 pm. Those attending can download or follow using Google Maps on the morning of the tour at http://www.sustainablebelmont.net/ But note; the page will not be available until then as a courtesy to our participating gardeners)
