Project/ Event Description:

The Placitas Garden Tour is an annual ticketed event, open to the public, from which net profits will benefit the Sandoval County Master Gardener projects and the Placitas Community Library.   $10.00 Tickets may be purchased on the day of the tour, or beforehand from select area merchants. For more information go to Volunteers are admitted free of charge.

The Placitas Garden Tour is Sunday, May 21, 2017, from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM.   A required group orientation and garden training session with your team leaders and garden owners is planned for Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 9:00 am – 11:00 am.


Sandoval County Master Gardeners (SCMG) are desired and encouraged to volunteer as garden docents, educators, and to promote the SCMG organization during the tour.

Volunteer Meeting Dates:

Volunteer garden assignments, shifts, and garden education preparation will be announced in April 2017 via email. As a volunteer, we ask that you are available for both the May 6th pre-tour/ training date, and May 21st tour date and times. SCMG Volunteer hours gained working as a garden docent, an educator, and/ or a participant at the SCMG information table on the day of the garden tour apply to the Public Outreach category.   Training and preparation hours apply to the Community Volunteer category.

The Placitas Garden Tour Committee is also seeking interested and dedicated volunteers to help select future tour gardens, to lead sub-committees and to help organize and manage the tour and volunteers.     Please contact us for more information.

This project is open to public volunteer participation as well. This is a community event!
