Garden Tour 2022

During this one-day annual event, Master Gardeners and other gardening enthusiasts show off their extraordinary gardens. Spread across the greater Des Moines metro, the tour will delight your senses, stimulate your curiosity, and inspire new ideas.

These home gardens reveal a variety of backyard spaces with patios, garden paths, bubbling fountains, perennial beds, water gardens and bountiful tomato and vegetable spaces. Shade or sun - inspiration abounds, all with the addition of a few very busy bee hives.

Master Gardeners will also be available at each garden to answer your questions.

Thanks to our sponsors and attendees from the 2022 Garden Tour! Stay tuned for dates and information for our next tour.
