2017 Garden Walk

June 24, 2017 - 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. CDT

This year we will once again showcase a bouquet of gardens--all in and around Valparaiso in Porter County Indiana. Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions and explain plantings at each garden. We have door prize drawings at every garden! Northwest Indiana's premier garden walk is sponsored annually by the Porter County Master Gardeners Association and Purdue Extension Porter County. Save money by taking advantage of advance ticket sales. Select here for information on advance ticket sale locations.

What Makes Our Walk Different

Not only is our Walk pretty, it’s also smart. We’re all about education and sharing. Our homeowners love to share their knowledge, and Master Gardeners are in the gardens to help you with your questions. Not only does your ticket book feature a description of each garden, it features our 1-2-3 Education Points! Each point in the book matches a numbered stake in the yard that highlights a special something in each garden.

Plus there is a door prize in every garden, donated by our wonderful sponsors, some of which also provide their businesses as locations for advance ticket sales.

So get that camera ready and save the date: Saturday, June 24, 9:00 a.m. - 4 p.m. CDT (Chicago Time).
