Join Katie Hemingway, owner of Grass Roots Gardens, for a guided tour of Nantucket gardens. Participants will meet at the Nantucket Lighthouse School and visit properties via a tour van, allowing guests to see a curated selection of private gardens that are not walking distance from one another. Once on the properties, participants will have ample time to walk around, take in the beauty of the gardens and ask questions.
Our garden tours are generously supported by
Nantucket Garden Festival partner Surfing Hydrangea Nursery.
