Sherman Library & Gardens now accepting nominations for Newport Beach Garden Tour

Sherman Library & Gardens is in the planning stages for the 2021 Newport Beach Garden Tour. The annual tour, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, takes place on the Saturday before Mother’s Day. The Garden Tour committee of dedicated volunteers is seeking recommendations for private, residential gardens in the Newport Beach area.

The Newport Beach Garden Tour showcases six residential gardens each year. Selected home garden owners will allow members of the community to wander through their yard from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday, May 8. If the tour goes “virtual” again this year, homeowners would agree to a professional videographer filming their gardens in mid-to-late April.
