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!
