The Sustainable Backyard Tour


How it Works....

Read the hosts’ descriptions of their yards here, beginning on June 1st. Choose locations nearest you that most match your goals or interests. Use a street guide or map app to plot your very own customized route for Tour Sunday. Pack your sunscreen, water bottle, hat, and head out! Tour yards will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. There is no single starting place and there are no tickets. You can pick up a tour guide at the Green Homes Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden on June 4th or at participating library- and sponsor-locations beginning June 3rd.
