Event Description


Kick off your summer with a event that is truly North Austin - and help our schools at the same time!
There will be 19 gardens on the NXNA Garden Tour, Saturday, June 1.  This is your chance to see, up close, 13 private home gardens, 5 school gardens and a community garden, all across North Austin, the hidden gem of Austin. From exotic succulent and cactus collections to funky chicken coops, classic Texas hide-aways, and a "Keep Austin Weird" gem that will blow your mind... this tour has it all.
