SELF-GUIDED NATIVE GARDEN TOUR

Enjoy Somerville while you experience beautiful native plant gardens.

This tour comprises gardens ranging from completely native to those just starting to transition to native. We want to bring attention to how modern gardening practices have replaced the plants that evolved to survive and thrive in this ecosystem with ones that may be beautiful, but are not part of the food web here. Our hope is that the visitor will be inspired by the life and beauty in these gardens - the butterflies, bees, caterpillars, and birds eating, resting, reproducing, and pollinating on the plants they evolved with - and want to learn more, and maybe even plant some native plants themselves!
