Portola Garden Tour!

Event detail
Add to my calendar

Portola neighbors open their back yards for the Annual Portola Garden Tour, a self-guided walk through private and public gardens in the sunny Portola neighborhood. Participants will learn about what plants thrive in San Francisco, how to make even small spaces outstanding, ideas for decks and patios and fun landscaping tips -- and get inspired to work on their own back yard. 

The Portola Library Garden will be part of the tour! Enjoy our garden and light refreshments between 10 -3PM. You may also check out seeds from our seed library!

The tour features a community “after-party” at local brewery Ferment, Drink, Repeat on San Bruno Avenue. Neighborhood Portola gardeners have been growing hops and will celebrate and taste the truly locally-made brew at the close of the tour. The Portola Garden Tour began in 2007 as a fund-raiser for the new Portola Branch Library.

This is a Green Stacks event sponsored by the San Francisco Department of the Environment.
