Northwest Perennial Alliance – Virtual Garden Tours

Have you been missing visiting gardens this summer?

The Northwest Perennial Alliance has been filming member gardens to offer virtual visits while in-person visits are not possible.

Everything is eco these days. Eco-friendly, eco-conscious, even eco-chic. The current trend towards all things eco has commercialized a prefix once packed with gritty optimism and turned it into a marketing tool. Given the proliferation of eco in business and the media, it’s easy to lose sight of its original meaning. Read more about the ecotourism and more.

Ecotourism immerses travelers in natural areas – a rainforest or a coastal wetland, for example – with the goal of educating and imparting environmental awareness. It employs our sense of sight, smell, hearing, touch, and sometimes even taste to bring about a better understanding of the natural world. According to The International Ecotourism Society, ecotourism is defined as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of the local people.” Ecotourism unites conservation with local communities and incorporates important aspects of sustainable travel. It should minimize impact and provide a financial incentive for conservation.

Dozens of videos of beautiful home gardens can be viewed online.

Visit and enjoy a few!
