2021 Garden Tour

The 2021 Garden Tour fundraiser is slated for Saturday, June 26, in Ogden Valley, from 8 am - 1 pm. 


Ogden Valley holds some hidden gems! Eight gracious property owners are opening their garden gates for this event which benefits the Ogden Nature Center. Tickets will be sold online only, and on a first-come, first-serve basis. Water bottles and lunches will be guaranteed for the first 150 people registered. The tour includes the Huntsville Monastery, where lunches will be available, and two fine art sales.

About the artists:  Onyon has painted over 20 pieces featuring barns, out-buildings and various scenes from Old Town Huntsville, including a fabulous depiction of the Shooting Star Saloon.  Her style is colorful, quirky and happy! These pieces are a real treat to see, and if you're lucky, you'll take one home. Ogden photographer, Mark Seawell, will be set up in the VanZandt/Lloyd barn showing his beautiful photography. His work is local and very ethereal.

The unique valley gardens will showcase a variety of styles. You'll see extensive perennial beds, "good bones" and outdoor architecture, romantic flower gardens, quaint patios, artistic spaces, outdoor sculptures, Monastery meadows, and a country farm.

At the first garden you'll receive a beautiful glass water bottle to carry with you along the route.  Lunch will be provided by The Lovin' Cup, with beverages donated by abcPepsi and Golden Beverage.

Lunch choices include:

A - Turkey Sandwich Box Lunch:  Turkey on wheat bread with cheese, lettuce, tomato and stone ground mustard aioli. Served with a cookie, a mint and a bag of chips. 

B - Veggie Wrap Box Lunch:  All the veggies in a wrap with stone ground mustard aioli. Served with a cookie, a mint and a bag of chips. 

There is a gluten free option for either of the lunch choices. Select your lunch choice when purchasing tickets.

The garden tour will be held rain or shine, no refunds. All tickets must be purchased online prior to the tour.  

To ensure the safety of all garden visitors, we ask you to follow these guidelines:

• Please check-in at garden number 1, anytime between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. -- the tour will end at 1 p.m.

• Please adhere to the route order, to ensure a one-way flow of traffic.

• Please practice social distancing by maintaining 6 ft. between you and other garden guests.  Household groups may move through the gardens together.

• Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at each garden.  Feel free to bring your own!

Our hope is to provide a fun, outdoor event that raises some much needed funds for the Ogden Nature Center.  Enjoy the beautiful gardens!

 Many thanks to The Ardent Gardener Landscape Design, The Lovin' Cup, ABC Pepsi and Golden Beverage for sponsoring this event.
