The free, self-guided tour is a unique opportunity to see San Francisco specific and Bay Area native plants in private gardens that range from highly designed and manicured to free-spirited and wild.

The tour includes an array of private gardens: mature gardens featuring 100% natives (focusing on compatible plantings), mixed gardens, professionally designed and maintained artistic gardens, gardens focusing on habitat for wildlife (for example, the chorus frog), gardens integrating food production with native plantings, gardens in transition to include more natives.

They also feature public gardens dedicated to local flora and fauna or similar gardens not usually open to the public.
