Sustainable Belmont is hosting its 7th Annual Green Belmont Garden tour. This free, self-guided garden tour highlights a variety of safe and healthy organic garden practices.

See how gardeners in Belmont have changed practices after last year’s drought. Learn about hearty perennial fruits, annual vegetables, and landscaping plants. See different composting methods firsthand. Talk with the gardeners about all their growing habits!

This year enter a chance to win a rain barrel or composter at each garden you visit.

The more gardens you visit the better chances of winning! This raffle is an effort to help reach out to the Belmont community on issues of sustainability and to encourage healthy yards care in Belmont. If you are already on our mailing list, you may still enter the raffle and residency is not a requirement.

*Printed maps can be picked up from the Beech Street Center at 266 Beech Street on September 10, 2017 from 11 to 3 pm. Download and print or follow using Google Maps via this link on the morning of the tour (page will not be available until then as a courtesy to our participating gardeners).

Volunteer! We are *always* looking for volunteers to help with the tour. Please email Jeri Weiss at sustainablebelmont@gmail.com. Thank you!
