Virtual South End Garden Tour

Enjoy a walking tour of the South End's eye-opening gardens & gardeners.

This year we’ve taken the tour online in this video featuring signature gardens and gardeners in this much beloved victorian neighborhood. Gardens showcased include a rooftop vegetable garden, an iconic community garden, several back yard gardens. In two of the gardens on this year’s Tour, neighbors have removed barriers between their yards to create most unusual and creative green spaces. For 27 years garden neighbors committed to the importance of community growing spaces for all have opened their garden gates for one day out of the year. Please join us exploring their gardens and hear what inspires them to create and maintain these special places.
