About the Event

The tour begins at the front of the garden where the majority of the native plants are located and planted by Yuko. Michael started a three sisters corner which Yuko wanted to do in the front. The tour continues to the back yard where there is a mixture of native plants, vegetables and fruits. The lawn was also dug up by Yuko and converted  for these plants. Behind the garage there is also a small pollinating garden that Yuko started when she became a member of David Suzuki's Butterfly Way. Hopefully the raspberries will be ready in time for the tour. On display will be Yuko's "garden bible" that shows information she gathered about compatible plants, plants that rabbits avoid, pollinating plants, three sisters theory, and a journal of the yearly changes.  Come join us at this yard which is in its third year.

ETIQUETTE AND SUGGESTIONS FOR GARDEN TOUR PARTICIPANTS:

1. The event will be identified with a Nature Regina yard sign.

2. Don’t pick the seed. Many gardeners would like to save the seed for birds. Seed may be available from Nature Regina.

3. If the site is a private garden ask permission to take photos. Many Volunteers have been showing their yard all day. Don’t outwear your welcome, leave at the time noted on the schedule. Front yards can of course be viewed outside of official garden hours. Put show respect and stay on the public sidewalk. Stick to the pathways unless the garden caretakers say you can walk on the lawn;

4. If its hot remember a water bottle and hat.

5. If you have children, please monitor them. Do not let them run through the garden beds. No pets in the gardens.

6. Be kind and understanding. Using native plants has a different aesthetic, and success is not measured in garden design elements, but in the

number of insects and birds that come to your yard. We have many types of yards from manicured to wild, from newly planted, to well-established.
