17th Annual
Sage & Songbirds Festival & Garden Tour


May 2-4, 2014 - Gardens open 10 am - 4 pm all 3 days

Ticket price:
Groups of 10 or more - $10/person
(email for details)

Tickets available online (see below).
Tickets are also available by mail and on the days of event.

Ticket valid all 3 days. Self-guided tour. Ticket includes map.
Go at your own pace, stay as long as you like in each garden. One visit per site, per ticket.

Spectacular water features, sensational succulents,
sprawling natives, a lush but low-water jungle,
and a veggie garden that could feed an army...
just some of what will be found on this year’s tour.

All 5 gardens on tour are owner-designed, and this is the debut showing of each site. (None have ever before been featured on this or any other garden tour.)

Two bonus sites--a place-of-worship winged wildlife habitat and birds-of-prey rehabilitation facility--will also be available for ticket-holders to visit at no additional charge.

Presented by CHIRP for Garden Wildlife, Inc., a not-for-profit habitat education corporation. All proceeds benefit habitat education for our backyards and schoolyards.

For additional information please visit or phone CHIRP at 619-445-8352.

Summer Hypertufa Workshops
tufa trough

Hypertufa troughs and pots
encourage healthy plants by providing
excellent drainage & air circulation around roots.
Succulents LOVE them!

Inspired by antique English feeding and watering troughs, hypertufa is created from an all-natural blend of portland cement,
vermiculite, perlite and peat moss.

Join us for a one-day workshop...
take home 3 rustic 'tufa projects!
