Hidden Garden tour returns to Springville

For more than 15 years the popular Hidden Garden Tour was held as one of the Utah Valley Regional  Medical Center fundraising programs. When that group decided not to sponsor the tour, the Utah County Master Gardeners Association stepped in to continue the tradition.

Master gardeners complete a program, which is part of the educational outreach of USU cooperative extension. The classes are held at Thanksgiving Point and in Provo twice a week from September through December. Each potential master gardener completes at least 40 hours of volunteer work in the community giving talks and demonstrations, diagnosing plant problems and answering gardening questions at the Utah County Fair and Farm Field Days.
