One of the highlights of membership in the Grapevine Garden Club is participating in “Gardens on View” or “Gardeners On the Go” tours. As gardeners we enjoy nothing better than to see what’s growing elsewhere, be it a local member’s salvia bed or an overnight trip to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin. We’re up for it all! As our tour director says, “Join a tour...learn more and make friends.”

Gardens on View2013 GOV Sigler

Following regular club meetings in the spring and fall, tours are scheduled to members' gardens - learning from each other's gardening experiences and studying landscape design.

Spring time iris garden always a favorite tour for members.

Gardeners on the Go

Tours for Gardeners on the Go are either within the local area taking most of a day, or at a greater distance with an overnight stay to explore gardens, nurseries, nature centers and wildlife refuges.

Join us for Springtime in the Fort Worth Japanese Garden, April 30. 

By April 30 the Japanese Garden is in rare form—gorgeous shades of new-growth-green and nothing fried yet by our Texas heat! Join Donna Detzel, Master Gardener and Japanese Garden Docent, for a stroll among the serene paths and a meet-and-greet with the fascinating koi fish. The tour begins at 10 but you must meet at the FWBG entrance lobby at 9:30 to catch the shuttle to the Japanese Garden. The fee is $11 for those 65+ and $13 for you young-uns. This fee includes parking at the entrance and use of the entire Botanical garden for the day. Heads up: The Garden is now closed to traffic of the motorized kind. So you will need to leave your car at the entrance lot. The tour ends at 11:15, but you may stay in the garden as long as you like.
