Garden Walk - Cedar Rapids

Saturday, July 20, 2024 - 9:00am to 3:00pm
Event Type: 

Prepare to be inspired! The Linn County Master Gardener Garden Walk is a unique opportunity to tour private and non-profit gardens. Explore diverse landscapes, from vibrant pollinator gardens and monarch releases, to styled storm-water rain gardens, to bountiful homestead vegetable and fruit garden plantings, to cottage-style gardening in a small space. All gardens featured are in southeast Cedar Rapids, all within 10 minutes of each other and are usually not open to the public. This public event is family friendly featuring many educational opportunities and activities throughout the gardens. Linn County Master Gardeners and homeowners are there to welcome you into the garden, answer your questions, offer insights into creating the garden of your dreams, and guide you through the gardens. This year the garden hosts have educational materials, giveaways and door prizes are offered while supplies last. Vendors and food/coffee trucks are featured at the Monarch Research Station gardens (the non-profit site that is traditionally not open to the public!)

Take this opportunity to slow down, enjoy nature, take garden strolls, and meet the garden hosts and Master Gardener volunteers who are ready to inspire all who visit their gardens.

Tickets are $10 for adults, children are free. All proceeds fund the activities of the Master Gardeners for Linn County. The event is held rain or shine, and no rain date is scheduled. If the event is cancelled, the fee is non-refundable, and will be considered a donation to support the Linn County Master Gardener program.
