Backyard Havens of the Somerville Garden Club: A Self-Guided Tour

Sunday, June 9, 2013
11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Rain or shine
$15 for a map and guide to 20 gardens

Our 2013 tour showcases the gardens of our very own Somerville Garden Club members and celebrates the many kinds of gardeners who create backyard (and front yard!) havens for their own pleasure and the enjoyment of neighbors and friends. The gardeners themselves will be welcoming visitors to their yards on tour day, so this is your chance to learn about plants, design, and horticulture from this wonderful array of passionate SGC members. Prepare to be inspired and educated, and don’t be surprised if you go away eager to create your own urban haven.

And since the Somerville Garden Club welcomes members from any community, the tour includes two gardens just “over the border” from Somerville in neighboring cities.

Shame all the other work has left us running late on the garden.

Next year I will look into signing up to be a stop on the tour.
