GARDEN TOUR
For over 25 years, the Pence's Garden Tour has provided the public with the opportunity to view 8-10 beautiful gardens. Centered in the town of Davis, these gardens are chosen for their diversity, overall design, and interesting use of plants. Visitors in the past have enjoyed Japanese gardens, art-filled yards, and xeriscapes filled with native grasses. This self-guided Tour is a ticketed event, taking place on the 1st Sunday in May. Tickets are sold at the Pence, among other locations, and include access to the gardens, homemade refreshments, and bidding in the silent auction area.
