31st Annual Ann Arbor Garden Walk™


It's our 31st Garden Walk on Saturday, June 8, and we're so excited to share these lovely spaces that we've extended the day an extra hour! Join us from 10 am to 5 pm to explore seven unique private gardens and a certified organic farm.
 
The private gardens offer everything, from small city lots to expansive acreage, sun to shade, rain gardens, waterfalls, ponds, native plants, wildflowers, perennials galore. Most of the gardens have been tended by their owners for many decades, and each has its own personality. Discover an 'arboretum of art' hidden in the city; a charming repurposed garden structure with a working widow's walk; a nature area-adjacent garden where urban and rural blend; and more. We're also revisiting a past Garden Walk favorite, where glass and mosaics reflect the beauty of the garden year-round.

Slow Farm is a woman-owned, USDA certified organic farm. Started in 2017 on 187 acres, the farm grows a wide variety of heirloom produce and flowers using sustainable practices. Take a behind-the-scenes look into organic farming and meet the people committed to growing food and community in environmentally friendly ways.

A plant table featuring splits and divisions of perennials from the gardens of Ann Arbor Farm & Garden members was a big hit last year, so we're doing it again! Located at one of the gardens, Walkers are welcome to take a few pots of nature home. Donations will be accepted. Look for details in your email receipt.

The Treat Truck, an Ann Arbor-based company, will be located at Garden 7 from noon to 3 pm, selling sweet treats that are 100% vegan, dairy-free and plant-based. Carol Furtado, local fiber artist, will offer colorful handmade scarves and other unique pieces.

As always, proceeds from the Garden Walk fund AAF&G’s annual grant and scholarship awards, supporting local garden and farm projects and education. Visit our Giving page to learn more about our impact within the community.

Purchasers will receive an email receipt with full event details. This receipt must be presented at the first garden location visited to receive a wristband for entry into all locations.
