The 2017 locations celebrate a range of architecture, native plants, unique trees, and succulents. Funds raised by the tour go toward fresh weekly groceries, nutrition education, and a congregate lunch program for FFT’s clientele.

Highlights include: 

 

The Manzanita Estate has views that are breathtaking in beautiful Montecito Heights, in Santa Rosa.  With an antique rose garden, Japanese garden, fountains, perennial beds, and shade gardens, this is a sure delight to have on our tour!

 

A renovated 1905 home and garden, this home has been remodeled to integrate the house and urban garden, featuring many succulents in and around a rock garden. There are numerous potted plants that encompass unique plants and flowering varietals.

 

There will also be an opportunity to tour the food bank, organic gardens, and edible landscape surrounding the Food For Thought headquarters in Forestville as well as the whimsical, wonderful Food For Thought Antiques store in Sebastopol. 


Tickets for the tour are $50 and include a booklet with descriptions of the homes and gardens and a map for the self-guided tour. Homeowners will open their private residences to ticket holders from 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday, May 28.
