The 12th annual Desert Garden Tour will be held from noon to 4 p.m.  Sunday, March 26. Presented by The Desert Horticultural Society of Coachella Valley, this year’s event features desert-friendly, water conserving gardens of all sizes, from back yards to HOA conversions to a private hillside display.

Enjoy self-guided walks through Palm Springs gardens that showcase a variety of landscapes and gardens, large and small. Created by homeowners and design professionals, these gardens offer insight and inspiration that speak to every garden landscape.

“Working Together to Save Water” is the theme of this year’s tour,” says Robert Musial, DHSCV tour chairman.  “No matter the size of your planting area, you can take ideas from these gardens that will add color and beauty and conserve water.”

“This year’s event begins at noon, allowing guests up to four hours to tour the featured gardens. Guests check in and receive tour maps at the Desert Water Agency, 1200 S. Gene Autry Trail, Palm Springs.

There is no cost for current DHSCV members. Admission is $15 for non-members and $5 for students. No checks or credit cards can be accepted. Cash only please.
