A free event is coming Saturday afternoon from 12 noon to 3 p.m. in Logan. It’s an opportunity for residents to visit several different gardens and homes in a walking tour to explore some creative gardening ideas including bee-friendly gardens, water-wise gardens and the use of solar power in the home and yard.
The Garden & Solar Tour is co-sponsored by the Bridgerland Audubon Society and Cache Soil to Table. According to audubon society president Hilary Shughart, you just park at Rudy’s Greenhouse overflow parking at approximately 1365 Canyon Road and cross the street.
“It’s been a 15-year tradition. It was originally started by the Cache chapter of the Utah Native Plants Society, working with Master Gardeners’. For a variety of reasons it fell to Bridgerland Audubon Society and Cache Soil to Table to keep the tradition going this year.
“It’s just so wonderful that people are going to be able to park in one place, in Rudy’s Greenhouse overflow parking on Canyon Road and then cross the street and all the houses are almost right next to each other,” she said.
On KVNU’s For the People program on Monday, Shughart said that garden tourists will find, in the wide variety of gardening styles, that the common denominator is that they are wildlife-friendly. It’s a self-guided tour with maps being provided.
