Since 2003, The Secret Gardens Tour® (SGT) has been working to provide resources for brain injury recovery in the Greater New Orleans area.  Based upon the premise that nature is healing, SGT hosts an annual garden tour and fundraiser revealing the hidden gems of Uptown New Orleans.

The 2013 Tour on Saturday March 23, 2013 is a chance to take a peek at New Orleans’ hidden gardens and meet the landscape professionals behind their beauty. The tour will include guided and self-guided tours of private gardens open to the public for one day only, as well as unveil the long-awaited SGT Serenity Garden, which will be open to the public year-round. As with last year, additional attractions will be planned around the Milton H. Latter Memorial Library lawn, including live music by local artists, a floral labyrinth, local food vendors, and Secret Treasures, an outdoor boutique with garden accessories, plants, art, and gifts for sale from vendors across the region. For the first time, The Secret Gardens Tour® will also be offering free yoga classes during the event, as its philosophies of healing the mind and body go hand-in-hand with those of SGT.
What Makes It Unique

The Secret Gardens Tour® differentiates itself from other home and garden tours in several ways. First, not only do visitors to the gardens receive a detailed description of each garden in the program, but the tour also includes garden designers in each garden, who are likely to be the expert who designed and/or maintains the gardens. If you have questions about the design and structure of the garden or the viability of the plant material and conditions in which it grows, you’ll have someone who can knowledgeably answer your questions! Secondly, The Secret Gardens Tour® unveils one of the most picturesque areas of New Orleans—a private neighborhood beloved for its architecture and variety of its gardens but also an area not often revealed to the public…a secret New Orleans. New Orleans is known for its music, its food, its architecture and its history but its gardens are also a year round glory.
