Art & Garden Tour

Join us on Sunday, April 22 from noon to 5 pm for our most popular event of the year.

This year we feature four gardens that are sure to inspire you with ideas, and an opportunity to see small and large gardens in various stages of updating and replanting. Two gardens have been recently landscaped within the past three years. You’ll see what a water-wise garden looks like on the way to maturity. The other two one acre plus gardens, tended by their owners for over 40 years, are surrounded by mature trees and plants, terraced paths and expansive views.

As always, the Tour is complimentary for GMIA member households in good standing. While it is not our intention to open our event to the general public, we will accommodate nonmember guests for a $10 donation per person. Alternatively, non-members are invited to join GMIA at the Tour and enjoy complimentary admission and other benefits. Annual dues are just $18 per household.

Don’t miss this popular GMIA annual event!

GMIA Succulent Swap

Friends don’t let friends buy succulents!

VIP entry for GMIA members at 10:00 am
Non-member entry at 11:00 am
Get a jump start on water-wise gardening at GMIA’s 5th Annual Succulent Swap. Bring cuttings or plants to share, but don’t be shy if you are just getting started and don’t have any extra plants – our generous participants always bring lots and there is plenty for all. GMIA will provide complimentary coffee and light snacks to round out the morning. Enjoy the magnificent two-acre garden of GMIA members Tere Trout and Jonathan Becker. A huge thank you to Tere and Jonathan for graciously hosting this event in their inspiring low water Wonderland. Look for their huge African tortoise who can be seen wandering around the property nibbling on juicy succulents. The Succulent Swap is open and free to the community. Please note: membership has its privileges with VIP entry for GMIA members whose dues are paid current.
