Five private gardens will be opened to the public during the Johnson County K-State Research and Extension Master Gardener Public Tour, May 21 and 22. Kansas City’s premier garden tour is an opportunity to tour some of the most beautiful private gardens in Kansas City. The tour was originally scheduled for 2020 but was postponed due to COVID.
Each garden is owned and maintained by an Extension Master Gardener. The gardens are selected for their individual qualities and personalities with something for every taste. Learn about Extension Master Gardener volunteers in The Best Times May-June 2021 issue.
This tour is popular because the owners are passionate about gardening and have transformed suburban lots into their own personal oasis. The garden owners and Extension Master Gardener volunteers will be on hand to answer questions. Visitors receive information about the garden’s development, along with educational tips to take home and incorporate into their own landscapes. Photography is encouraged.
