Tickets can also be purchased online at clallammgf.org.
Petals & Pathways is a self-guided tour. Ticket holders can use the map printed on the ticket to visit any or all the gardens in any order. The ticket has directions and descriptions of the gardens.
All home gardens have been carefully selected by Master Gardeners with parking, accessibility, diversity in design, and creativity, tour organizers said. The gardens are named to reflect their highlights such as “Grandma’s Garden” which is rich in family history and the peacefulness of “Serenity in Four Seasons.”
Visitors will experience extensive woodland and meadow landscapes, numerous hanging baskets, vegetable gardens, fruit tree orchards, water features, fire ring gathering areas, a rain garden, permaculture and a greenhouse.
All the gardens will have Master Gardener volunteers to help with questions on plant identification. A map will be printed on the tickets for this self-guided tour.
Proceeds from the tour help to maintain the Woodcock Demonstration Garden in Sequim and numerous Master Gardener community services such as the Youth Enrichment Program (YEP) and educational outreach programs.
