Redubbed the “Yarden Tour”, this blended term speaks to the combination of yards and gardens represented at this annual event. Aimed at showcasing the unique ways people landscape in small areas, convert backyards into extensions of their homes, sustain biodiversity and wildlife with native plants, or feed their families, this event is a great way to spend a Saturday. Further, we have two farms on the tour this year in the heart of our neighborhood. Did you know we have farms? #loyaltolocal

Featuring twelve properties, the 4th annual Yarden Tour offers more than yards and gardens. We also have music, art, workshops, gardening & natural vendors, plus food & drink throughout the tour. The best way to experience the event is on a bike and guided bike rides or self-guided eBikes are offered. (Go Tuk’n is SOLD OUT!)  Make this event your Mother’s Day gift and pick a local café to stop for lunch or iced coffee for the perfect day.

MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION: Where do I start?? Quick Answer, ANY location on the tour! See below. 

Bring a copy of your online ticket purchase from 904Tix OR your phone to ANY TOUR LOCATION to begin your journey! Once there, you will receive (while supplies last): 

  1. A wristband to be used at each property during check in
  2. An event program/booklet which includes a map, property details, activities, and workshops timing and details (currently not final, email me to receive a digital copy when complete if interested)

How to “tour”

There is no route, no start, no stop. A map is provided with your ticket that will help you decide how you want to plan your day. Bikes are the best way to minimize parking concerns! The total distance between the 2 farthest properties is 2.7 miles and there are 12 properties total.  *Guided tours with Go Tuk’n, Art Bikes Jax, or ZenCog are sold separately.
