Hennepin County Master Gardener Learning Garden Tour

This annual self-guided event features a community garden and unique home gardens spanning from Edina to Minnetonka that are tended by Master Gardener volunteers. Explore the natural beauty, learn from demonstrations, enjoy fresh eats from food truck stops along the way and visit the Garden Shed for useful gardening tools and accessories as all proceeds from this tour support the University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardener Volunteer community programs. 

Art of the Garden

Experience the beauty of the outdoors in the comfort of an indoor garden that is equipped with natural works of art and fine crafts inspired and designed for use. Through sculptures, ceramics, glass, fiber, landscape painting, photography, botanicals and more, visitors will experience the enchanting of Mother Nature.

Haute House Garden Tour

Enjoy a 1-1/2 hour tour of Haute House Gardens with Marsha Hunt, co-Owner of Haute House Studio. She will lead a tour of the extensive gardens at her Edina home and share fool-proof gardening tips for growing hardy perennials, how and when to divide your plants, and to how to achieve color in the garden all-season long. She will also share her surprisingly simple techniques for creating espaliered walls of climbing garden roses and walls of wisteria vines. You will take home a hardy perennial division to plant in your own garden. Afterwards the group will enjoy a provided box lunch.

Art of the Garden

The natural world has always inspired art. The Minnetonka Center for the Arts will exhibit works for the garden or inspired by gardens, from sculpture to paintings. Purchase a new garden piece or be inspired by these homages to nature.
