Searching for Gardens for Next Year

Garden-Tour-Handout-Mini-HQ-w

We are actively seeking gardens to include in next year’s Garden Tour.

The date is not quite set yet, but you can expect another glorious tour of hidden gardens in the Roseburg area, delightful music and lovely unique art all provided by local artisans.

Our Garden Tour Team is focusing on the Wilbur and Sutherlin areas for Garden Tour 2017. Do you have a garden you would like to share? It is so much fun to participate! Let us know if you are thinking about this, or if you know of a garden that needs to be seen!

Thanks so much!

The self-guided tour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. will feature six gardens in the Roseburg area located amid the diverse landscapes of the Umpqua including along the river, tucked into a wooded hillside, under the big sky of our open valley and in neighborhoods in the heart of town.

See photos of Garden Tour 2014 here!

Musicians will be playing at each garden, helping to bring out the magic of their surroundings. Artists will be demonstrating their skills and showing their wares, making the tour the perfect occasion to pick up a handmade gift for a special friend or occasion.

Tickets are $12 and will become available on May 15 at the businesses listed below. Your ticket also will serve as a descriptive guide to our gardens, artists and musicians and will include driving directions and a map.

Ticket Outlets:

  • My Coffee
  • While Away Books
  • Umpqua Local Goods
  • Hanson Jewelers
  • Photo Frogg
  • Munchies

Tickets also will be available for $15 on the day of the tour at the Chapman garden (2018 Del Rio Rd) and the Finney Garden (1433 SE Kane St).

We’re very grateful to those who have planned, planted, weeded, watered and worried this spring to prepare their gardens for our tour. Please join us – and bring a friend or two – to enjoy the fruits of their labor and to recognize their meaningful contribution to our community.
