The Ogden Nature Center puts on a Garden Tour once a year. Their website says “The Ardent Gardener Landscape Design is pleased to host a Summer Garden Tour on Saturday, July 14th from 9am until 3pm. Gardens in the Ogden Valley will be featured. Tickets can be purchased at the Ogden Nature Center, 966 West 12th Street, or at each of the gardens on the day of the event, or online at www.ogdennaturecenter.org.”. We also had a great write up in the paper about it: http://www.standard.net/stories/2012/07/07/more-tour. They had this to say about the Garden we were at: “ The Donahoe Garden, 3837 Elkridge Trail, Eden Designed to blend with the natural environment, the garden is filled with native shrubs and flowers. Boulders found on-site are used for retaining walls and planting pockets. Boulders were also used to create a spiral herb and vegetable garden. Art by Our Children’s Earth will be for sale in the garden. Free food samples from Zucca Trattoria.”. Here are some of our great pictures from our fun day.
