Woodside gardens showcased

Three private Woodside gardens and two public grounds are on the circuit for the Educational Garden Tour sponsored by Master Gardeners of San Mateo and San Francisco Counties on Saturday, June 26.

The self-guided tour is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Master Gardener volunteers will serve as docents at each garden and lead educational seminars on topics ranging from caring for oaks to container gardening, according to a press release about the tour.

In addition to the Putnam grounds and gardens, the tour will include a hillside home with more than 200 oak trees, and a property with an extensive vegetable garden, meadow, and native and drought-tolerant plants, according to the press release.

Woodside High School's Edible Garden and the Woodside Library Native Garden are also on the tour.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the tour. Proceeds benefit the local Master Gardener program.

Participants can pick up tickets, tour maps and other information starting at 9:30 a.m. the day of the tour at the Woodside High School Edible Garden, 199 Churchill Ave. in Woodside.
