Our Story

Botanical brilliance

Experience Memphis Gardens (EMG) is organized by the Cooper-Young Garden Club (CYGC), a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit.  EMG seeks to celebrate, champion and cultivate Memphis’ private/public green spaces and make Memphis a premier garden tourist destination. The aim is to create a celebratory atmosphere, educate, and inspire visitors to make their own outdoor spaces beautiful.

The 2024 City Wide Garden Walk is a “must attend” 6 week summer garden event for garden lovers across the Mid-South and beyond.  Visitors will tour public/private gardens, business gardens, community gardens, cut flower farms, aquaponics, and a railroad garden, to name a few. Gardens of all styles and sizes are included, ranging from intimate urban retreats to sprawling country gardens, from sophisticated plant collections to exuberant displays of old favorites.

The Tour Begins

The EMG Tours begins May 18-19, 2024 with the Signature annual Cooper-Young Garden Walk featuring over 100 gardens, speakers, musicians, and garden vendors, throughout the vibrant, historic neighborhood.

Walks & Events

The EMG event continues through June 2024, with city-wide garden walks and events, occurring throughout Memphis.  The gardens are open on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
