Since 1995, the Garden Conservancy has held Open Days, an event that welcomes visitors into thousands of inspired private gardens in forty-one states. Through Open Days, the Garden Conservancy is working to fuel the public’s passion for gardens and gardening, while celebrating the rich diversity in American gardens.

This year, the Marin Art & Garden Center (MAGC) and the Marin Garden Club are partnering with the Garden Conservancy to bring you the 2017 Marin Open Day: Glorious Gardens of the Ross Valley.

Plan to spend your day with us, starting with a morning talk over coffee and including lunch and a chance to walk the grounds of the Marin Art & Garden Center before or after your private garden visits.
