Olbrich's 2015 Home Garden Tour presents eight exceptional gardens that demonstrate the ethic of sustainability through a diversity of styles.

Included is the neighborhood of Middleton Hills--a model of new urbanism--where smaller, intimate lots are built around generous shared greenspaces. On the other end of the spectrum, large suburban lots and historic farm property showcase fruit orchards, organic vegetable gardens, backyard chickens, and beekeeping. Native plants and prairies, composting and permaculture techniques, and cleverly recycled materials are also featured.

Talk with homeowners, landscape designers, Master Gardeners, and other Olbrich volunteers, and learn some of the techniques employed by these gardeners who create functional and beautiful spaces that are harmonious with nature.
