The eagerly awaited 26th annual Georges River Land Trust “Gardens in the Watershed” tour will take place on Sunday, July 16, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. rain or shine, in the middle reaches of the Georges River watershed. This year’s tour promises to be one of the best yet—five gardens in Appleton, Hope, and Union will delight the senses with lake views and spectacular plantings.
Along with the opportunity to enjoy the diversity of the area and the individual homeowners’ horticultural creativity, gardening experts will speak at two of the gardens offering helpful information for your own garden. Amy Campbell, a Maine Master Gardener and nature photographer, will present “The Importance of Pollinators.” Rebecca Jacobs of the Knox-Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District will speak on “Creating Buffers in Shoreline Zones.”
Advance tickets and brochures are available at local merchants, including Hedgerow, 8 Ridge Road in Martinsville, and also through the land trust at www.georgesriver.org/garden.
