Garden Tour – June 24

We did decide on having a Garden Tour. We have picked Sunday, June 24th as the best date. We would ideally need to have at least 10 to 12 gardens participate. There would be a charge for the map to the gardens as this would be one of of fundraisers. If you or someone you know would like to participate in the garden tour please let me know ASAP. The gardens need not be formal or huge as gardeners are often interested in many different kinds of gardens. The gardens do not necessarily need to belong to members.
