19th Annual Garden Tour May 11, 2013
Our 19th Annual Ojai Valley Garden Tour will be on Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and we will have 5 private gardens across the valley ready for viewing. From the East End to Oak View we have gardens that will impress you with their simplicity, their solutions for planting in problem areas, and their use of water-wise plantings. Of course the City of Ojai Demonstration Garden will be one of the stops on our tour again this year. Also again this year, the Tour falls on Mother's Day Weekend. With our normal spring weather, this will be a great day to spend with your mother taking a leisurly stroll through local gardens--and why not make it a multi-generational affair?

Signal St., Suite P (enter off Aliso St.), or online at Chamber website or at Flora Gardens at 245 Old Baldwin Road on Hwy. 150. Flora Gardens is open daily from 8 - 5.
