GARDENS WILL NOT BE OPEN TO IN-PERSON VISITS.
Out of respect for the community and garden hosts, please do not visit the gardens in person. Please visit Theodore Payne Foundation social media to experience the tour.
How to Join via Zoom
We are using the platform Zoom, specifically the webinar function, to host this event. You will need to download Zoom software to your device to be able to join the meeting. For a more seamless experience, we recommend that you download in advance, and practice joining and creating meetings with friends and family before this weekend’s programming.
If you are joining our Online Garden Tour Social this weekend, you do not have to allow camera or audio access to be shared. You can join and listen in, and type questions through a Q&A box, if you prefer. There will also be opportunities for people who want to join with audio/video questions.
Zoom is free to access as an individual. The company has amazing support to help you learn how to use it, quite quickly.
Here is a great page to start, where you can choose getting started either from a desktop (e.g. home computer), or mobile device, and follow the instructions for downloading the software and sign-up.
Here is another very helpful section of the website to troubleshoot and learn more about Zoom:
[Online. Instead of In-Person]
Let’s stay connected and engage with something positive for the community during these difficult times. The Online Native Plant Garden Tour takes place on Saturday and Sunday, March 28 and 29, 10 am — 5 pm. During those hours, join us in an interactive online Garden Tour Social, to meet the passionate homeowners, inspiring designers, and dedicated Theodore Payne staff behind Theodore Payne’s largest annual outreach event. Schedule and details are on the homepage.
Leading up to the tour, check our Instagram accounts, @nativeplantgardentour and @theodorepayne as well as Youtube and Facebook to see homeowner and designer videos about what is happening in their gardens right now.
Please consider making a donation to support this program, which we have made free and available to all. This is a critical time to support the Theodore Payne Foundation, a treasure of Los Angeles since 1960. Please help us to ensure TPF’s exceptional native plant nursery, and impactful educational and community programming live through and beyond this time of crisis.
