Bay City Gardeners’ Garden Tour 2015 Welcomes All

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015 at 3:26 PM

Forty-four gardens will be open to the public this Sunday, July 12, with the chance to visit old favorites and discover 17 new gardens. Get fresh ideas, see different plants, and hang out with fellow gardeners; some hosts will even be serving refreshments! 

To be official, pay $5 per person from 12:45 to 3:30 p.m. on the day of the tour at the JMC Ice Arena (near the zoo) or the LEAF Education Center (in Frontier Park), to receive a map to the gardens. Entry fee proceeds benefit Bay City Gardeners community projects. In the past they’ve contributed to International Flavors Garden and the new Winter Garden at LEAF.

Some eastside gardens will be open until 6 p.m. to give everyone a chance to hit all the locations. – Mary Birdsong
