Who We Are

The Mary Lou Heard Memorial Garden Tour is a yearly, self-guided charity event held by the Mary Lou Heard Foundation, a California nonprofit organization dedicated to continuing Mary Lou's life work.

Our Mission is to provide an opportunity for the public to enjoy and celebrate the efforts and hard work of local gardeners and their residential landscapes.

No price will ever be set for viewing the gardens. Donations received at the host gardens on tour days will go to the Sheepfold, a charity that serves and shelters women in crisis and their children. Let your heart and your spirit dictate the amount of any gift you are willing to give. Donation jars will be available at each host garden for your cash or check donations, or you can donate through PayPal on our Donate page.
