Portola’s Creative Green Thumb On Display

Tour participants stop for a photo in Jeanette Wright’s back yard on Goettigen Street.

Last Saturday was our yearly opportunity to explore some of the hidden spaces tucked behind the unassuming homes of the Garden District. Following its big 10th anniversary last year, the 11th annual was a bit less formal in organization but still full of surprising spaces and creative gardening.

Thank You

None of this would be possible without the dedication of Ruth Wallace and all18 of the neighborhood gardeners who work for months putting the event together.. The Portola Garden District Tour is a grassroots community led effort that has helped to revive the Garden District identity by opening homes and brining people together to create a community around gardening.  Plus, some of the gardens serve wine with the view and who doesn’t like that?
