Backyards of Broadwater is a self-guided yard and garden tour organized by Broadwater County Master Gardeners and the Extension Office.  It highlights community members with unique and innovative landscapes and provides an opportunity to network with others and share the lessons learned along the way. 

The first Backyards of Broadwater Tour debuted in August 2014, organized by the Townsend Heritage Gardens.  After a brief hiatus, it's back with fresh ideas, new gardens and old favorites. 

The next tour will be Saturday, July 20th, 2019 from 10:00am-3:00pm.  Tickets are $5.00 per person and will go on sale on July 1st.  Hope to see you in the backyards of Broadwater County!

Where can I buy tickets?

Tickets go on sale on July 1 and are available at Goose Bay Glass and the Broadwater County Extension Office in Townsend or Chadwick's Nursery in Helena.
