Event Details

The GreenUtica Garden Tour, an event presented by Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, will be Saturday, August 10 from 10am to 3pm. The tour, which is in its fourth year, is a free, self-guided walking/driving tour of one hundred home gardens in Utica neighborhoods.

How can you participate in the GreenUtica Garden Tour?

Show Off Your Garden-Be on the Tour

If you have a home in Utica with a flower garden, vegetable garden, container garden or notable trees/landscaping, contact us to be on the tour. Gardeners open their yards to tour goers to let them peruse their front, side and back yard gardens. Many of the gardeners even enjoy sharing information about plant selection and tips with tour goers. Contact gpearce@greenutica.org for more information or call 315-790-5262 to discuss adding your garden to the tour.

Take the Tour

To take the tour, pick up a map at the GreenUtica office the morning of August 10th. The map will show garden locations by neighborhood and will designate if they are flower, vegetable, or container garden or notable trees/landscaping. Tour goers can customize their experience to the types of gardens that interest them the most. The homes on the tour will have lawn signs. Most tour goers drive to their neighborhood of choice, walk that neighborhood, then drive to the next location.   

Last year, the tour included homes in downtown, South Utica and East Utica. We hope to expand to other neighborhoods this year.
