Private Garden Tours

Garden from 2022 Auxiliary Private Garden Tour

Tour four private gardens as guests of the Arboretum Auxiliary. Guests will travel on luxury, air-conditioned motor coaches to four local gardens -- each with its own history and charm -- followed by Sunday brunch, Sunday evening hors d'oeuvres or weekday lunch at the Arboretum.

This year's gardens include a garden that was featured in Midwest Home Magazine. Guests will be inspired by creative color combinations, pollinator-friendly plantings, interesting water features and beautiful art pieces.

$25 of the fee is a tax-deductible contribution to the Arboretum Auxiliary. Call 612-625-9865 with questions.
