Carpinteria Opens Nurseries for Tour Saturday April 13th

"America’s Flowers!”

Visit the beautiful blooms of Carpinteria! 
Ever wonder what beauty lies behind the glass in a
greenhouse? Now’s your chance during the 5th Annual
Carpinteria Greenhouse & Nursery Tour on April
13th, 2013! There will be a colorful array of flowers to
see ranging from orchids and roses to gerberas and
more while touring the flower farms. 
Enjoy these guided tours with the growers themselves
as you learn about growing CA GROWN flowers for
commercial purposes. Information will include several
areas such as propagation, fertilizing, pest control,
 harvesting, packing house.
We recommend you wear comfortable shoes and layered
clothing as many of these tours will involve walking through
greenhouses or growing areas and vary in temperatures.
This event is FREE and open to the public thanks to our
sponsors and hosted by the Santa Barbara County Flower
and Nursery Growers’ Association.

no specific start point for the tour and no reservations are

nurseries and go! We also will have several locations
