The 13th annual San Juan Island Garden Tour will feature four of the island’s finest, a diverse bunch, ranging from a modestly sized garden with raised beds and hoop houses, anchored by a fruit and vegetable enterprise, to one that features flowers, vegetables and a circular walk through a surrounding forest on the grounds of a secluded bed-and-breakfast. Docents will be on hand to help guide you through each garden and answer questions.
The 2013 Garden Tour is presented by the newly formed San Juan Island Garden Consortium, which, along with longtime sponsors San Juan Horticultural Society and WSU Master Gardeners, includes the San Juan Island Garden Club. In addition to being inspiring and a whole lot of fun, the garden tour is a fundraiser as well. Proceeds benefit the Master Gardener’s demonstration garden (located near the intersection of Market and Nash streets, next to the Family Resource Center) and the Flower Hall exhibit at the County Fair. Proceeds also help cover the cost of a printed edition of the Fair’s premium booklet, a cause spearheaded by the garden club.
Tickets are $15 per person, available the week before the tour at: Browne’s Garden Center, Griffin Bay Bookstore, Robin’s Nest and Roche Harbor Resort Grocery.
