Garden Walkabouts

Wild Ones River City Chapter is seeking hosts for “Walkabouts”—informal tours of home gardens and landscapes managed by members. We’d like to visit gardens of ALL sizes, small to large!

  • Walkabouts last about two hours, with guests coming and going like an open house.
  • Hosts select the day and time.
  • Walkabouts will be held rain or shine.
  • Walkabout dates will be announced via our regular email communications.

NOTE: This is not a garden “inspection.” We all deal with weeds! If you choose to offer refreshments (not required or expected) keep it very simple.

If you would like to host a Walkabout, contact Marti MacArthur at [email protected].
