Liability Waiver & Etiquette for the Garden

Welcome to the 2016 BCMG Spring Garden Tour

  • We are all guests of our generous garden hosts, so let’s be courteous.
  • Although some gardens are more handicap accessible than others, most have many irregular surfaces that may not accommodate wheelchairs, walkers or strollers.  Please check first.
  • Don’t litter, don’t pick plants and don’t stray from the paths.
  • Please leave your pet at home out of courtesy to garden owners and guests.
  • Be mindful of others when taking photos.  Do not bring tripods, selfie sticks or large equipment.
  • Kids are welcome if parents keep an eye and a hand on them.
  • Come and go during stated hours.  Coming early or staying late is not considerate of hosts or volunteers who have had a long day.
  • Parking can be challenging.  Park vehicles in approved areas, and don’t block neighbors’ drives, mailboxes or prevent other cars from entering or leaving the parking area.
