The primary fundraising activity for FOX is its annual garden tour. Since the tour’s inception in 2011, this popular event has been in various Colorado Springs locations, including Village Seven, the West Side, the Old North End, Patty Jewett, the Broadmoor, and north central Colorado Springs.
The 2020 tour, "A Midsummer Stroll," revisits the Old North End.
Tour attendees observe various gardening practices including water conservation, xeriscaping, deer-resistant techniques and raising vegetables.
Expert gardeners are available at each of the gardens to answer questions about plants and good gardening practices.
Plein Air Garden Artists and live music augment the experience.
