Bay City Gardeners’ Garden Tour 2014 by Mary Birdsong

Garden Tour Erie 2014 is your best chance to experience hidden garden gems tucked away in the city. You can visit new neighborhoods, meet new plants and people, and talk about ideas with garden hosts who will greet visitors in their city gardens from 1 to 5 p.m. Organized by Bay City Gardeners, this year’s tour features 20 new gardens and—rumor has it—special offerings like live jazz and poetry readings (we’ll let you discover which gardens have those).

For a mere $5, you can buy a map and conduct a self-guided tour of approximately 36 private gardens and a sprinkling of public gardens. Maps will be available starting at 12:30 p.m. on the day of the tour at the JMC Ice Arena (near the Erie Zoo) and the LEAF Education Center (in Frontier Park).

Want to go upscale? Sign up in advance for a trolley tour of some of the gardens for just a little bit more. Proceeds benefit Bay City Gardeners community projects.

1 to 5 p.m., Sunday, July 13 //  For trolley reservations: 504.6214 // Facebook.com/BayCityGardeners
