The City of Woodland Invites you to The 6th Annual Water-Wise Landscape Tour!

This free event brings California Honey Festival goers on a tour of bee-friendly gardens in historic downtown Woodland.


  • Get inspired! Explore the front and back yards of neighbors who have designed creative, bee-friendly gardens with low watering needs. See examples of landscapes large and small, with full sun and in shade.
  • Learn from the Experts! Homeowners and UCCE Master Gardeners of Yolo County will be present at the landscapes to share their experiences and answer your questions. Plants lists and even some design plans will be available to take home.
  • Do-it-Yourself! Participants will leave with the information they need to start their own landscape design projects and even take home a free water-wise plant of their choosing!

Stop by the City of Woodland’s Water Conservation booth next to the Garden Stage to pick up a guidebook.

Guided tours will leave from and return to the Garden Stage at 11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., and 1:00 p.m. and will be approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes long.
