Gardens in the Watershed Tour 2012

July 15, 2012 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

$25

Every year, the Georges River Land Trust hosts the Gardens in the Watershed tour in a different section of the St. George River watershed to give visitors a sense of the diversity and beauty of the landscapes from Montville to Port Clyde, and to explore regions they may have never visited.

The 2012 Gardens in the Watershed tour features seven outstanding gardens in Spruce Head and Rockland, with some wonderful views of nearby Penobscot Bay. The tour is unique in that it features gardens which have been created and maintained by the garden owners.

This year’s tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, July 15.

In addition to enjoying the gorgeous gardens, the day includes gardening talks, opportunities to meet the garden owners, and a raffle for items such as gift certificates donated by local nurseries, florists, farms, and artisans. The tour is the primary fundraising event of the Georges River Land Trust and the proceeds enable the Land Trust to work with landowners to honor their legacy of land, create and maintain the Georges Highland Path, and offer outdoor experiences to the public.

Tickets are $25 and may be purchased online, along with prepaying for lunch and buying raffle tickets for the gift certificates offered by local business.

A map of the gardens is here.
