WATSONVILLE — Hidden in the back roads of the Pajaro Valley, tucked into rolling, verdant fields and sequestered behind opaque greenhouse walls is a world normally unseen by the public.

Watsonville’s greenhouse industry is a world bustling with energy, overflowing with color and resonant with the sight of growing flora.

From there, farmers grow and ship millions of flowers, succulents and other plants across the state and the nation.

Until five years ago, few ever entered the world, but now the annual Monterey Bay Greenhouse Growers Open House sets aside a day when they can do just that.


The fifth-annual Monterey Bay Greenhouse Growers Open House is June 21 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. For information, visit www.montereybayfarmtours.org, email tours@montereybayfarmtours.org or call 274-4008.
