More than 325 people attended the Fallbrook Garden Club’s Home Garden Tour on April 29. Of the seven gardens viewed, two were 2016 Fallbrook Beautification Award winners. The garden types varied from drought tolerant to lush green landscapes and included garden art, plein air painters, a rainbow of succulents, rivers of rock, water falls and vegetable plots too.
The tour began at the Fallbrook Historical Society where more than 1,000 plants were available for sale. Most of these were potted and prepared by garden club members beginning about six months prior to the event.
The garden club has more than 205 members and more than 60 of them worked the event this year.
The Garden Tour is held every other year, alternating with the club’s flower show, as the main fundraising event supporting its scholarship fund. Scholarships are given to agricultural and horticultural students at Mira Costa College, and Fallbrook High School students entering college to study agricultural and horticulture.
