Oasis to host Garden Tour May 4

The Oasis Garden Club of IWV will hold its annual Self-Guided Garden Tour Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“The tour will feature unique and beautiful gardens in the Ridgecrest area,” said a spokesperson.

“Participants on the tour will garner ideas for home landscaping and enjoy seeing drought tolerant and native plants, as well as plant favorites and many kinds of agaves, succulents and cacti.

“One garden shows stoneware tables designed and made by the homeowner. Another garden shows how well an artificial turf area installed 10 years ago can be maintained.

“There is also a garden that has been converted from lawn to use of water-conserving native and drought-tolerant plants through participation in the Cash for Grass program sponsored by the Indian Wells Valley Water District.”

Tickets, each with brief descriptions of the gardens and a map, can be purchased at the Maturango Museum or from Oasis members for $8 per person.

For more information call 760-977-7967 for more information.

Oasis Garden Club of IWV is a member of California Garden Clubs, Inc. and Pacific Region of National Garden Clubs, Inc. and meets at Joshua Hall at the Desert Empire Fairgrounds on the second and fourth Thursdays from September through June.
