From there, the route crosses east through the middle of the peninsula toward Rural Rootz, with four mystical gardens for you to stroll through and learn about while taking in the beauty.

A little father up the Peninsula, it’s off to Bird’s Nest Garden Farm to finish off your garden tour, where you’ll be able to see the different types of flowers and plants that grow in this unique topsoil. Following a green thumb protocol, they have many different vegetables, herbs and ornamentals grown on site as well as an “off-grid” house made of raw materials – perfect for plants and people!
