Garden Tour History


Twenty-two years ago, David Lubin Elementary School teachers saw the need for more educational enrichment at the school. To raise funds, they created the East Sacramento Garden Tour – an effort that has grown into a tradition of tremendous success for students and the entire school community. Today, the Garden Tour is a combined effort of the David Lubin Parent Teacher Group, teachers, staff, and community partners. The Garden Tour funds the STEAM curriculum, the art program, and additional opportunities for the children, including the After School Academy and additional teachers’ aids for small group learning. 


2022 marks the 100th year for David Lubin Elementary as a school. The Garden Tour is an integral part in continuing the success. The goal is to raise $100,000 for the 100th year!

What to Expect

This two-day event produced by David Lubin Elementary parents and volunteers, is an incredible opportunity for the Sacramento community to enjoy quality time while getting sneak peaks of “Fab 40s” gardens, shopping with local makers & artisans, enjoying live music, community engagement activities and local food, and partaking in pampering and wine-tasting opportunities.
