The five gardens on this year’s tour are spread throughout Asheville and cannot be readily viewed from the street. See how each garden uses different and creative ways to showcase a variety of native and specimen plants, solve steep slope and water problems, grow veggies, integrate art into the landscape, attract pollinators, and invite peaceful contemplation.


Tickets for this self-guided tour are $20. Advance tickets are available beginning April 15 at the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Buncombe County office, 49 Mt. Carmel Road, Asheville, NC, at selected Master Gardener℠ volunteer events in April and May, and online from April 15 to May 31. Purchase Garden Tour tickets online.

Day-of-tour tickets may be purchased at the tour start point: the Asheville Visitor Center, 36 Montford Avenue, Asheville, N.C.

Proceeds support Master Gardener℠ volunteer programs
Garden tours raise money to support our programs, with emphasis on our School Garden Grants program. Since our first tour in 2007, we have given over $40,000 in grants to more than 50 schools, allowing thousands of Buncombe County children to become involved in healthy, outdoor activity. They are our future gardeners!
