The Sustainable Backyard Tour


Discover the Environment in Your Backyard!

The Sustainable Backyard Tour is a grassroots community production showcasing eco-friendly yards & gardens throughout St. Louis City and County. More than 40 hosts welcome you this year to see the many ways we can live more sustainably in our own backyards. 

Some hosts have been growing food, improving soils and building habitat for years; others are just beginning. Wherever you are on that spectrum, you’re in good company.

We all need to do whatever we can to lighten our impact on this fragile planet, to ensure that water, air and soil can continue to provide for us in generations to come.

The place to start is wherever you are.

Read the hosts’ descriptions of their yards. 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!
