Editor's note: The organizers have changed the event dat to September 10. The article has been updated to reflect that. 

ChangeHampton is planning an East Hampton garden tour on Sunday, September 10, that emphasizes gardens that improve the environment, including pollinator, native and rain gardens, as well as bioswales.

The tour will kick off at 11 a.m. at ChangeHampton’s Community Pollinator Garden at East Hampton Town Hall. Abby Clough Lawless of Farm Landscape Design, who designed the garden, will be on hand along with Paul Muñoz of Eco-Harmony Inc., whose crews have done the heavy landscaping work.

The tour will continue with the Garden Club of East Hampton’s pollinator garden, also on the grounds of Town Hall.

The next stops will be at the two bioswales — channels designed to concentrate stormwater and remove pollutants — at Methodist Lane, planted in 2021, and Town Pond, planted in 2017. Kris Liem, a master gardener and the chair of the Eastern Long Island Surfriders Ocean Friendly Gardens Committee, who maintains the two bioswales, will be the tour guide at this stop.

The tour concludes at the Mimi Mehan Native Plant Garden next to the Clinton Academy at 101 Main Street. Guide Abby Jane Brody, the creator and curator of the garden with the Garden Club of East Hampton, designed it to be an inspiration for visitors’ home gardens, with blooming plants eight months of the year, according to ChangeHampton.

There is no fee for the tour. RSVP to
