Monthly Open Tours:(the third Sunday at 10 am sharp)

The garden is now closed until March 1. Please come enjoy Spring with us, and read up on permaculture in the meantime. Go to the Resources page to find great books that you can get through your library, and videos of reliable permaculturalists on YouTube! Happy Holidays!

Our two-hour tour is an information-packed introduction to permaculture class set throughout Finch Frolic Garden. Followed by a Q&A session, you will leave full of inspiration of projects and improvements that you can do immediately, no matter what size property you have.
