The Garden Club of Long Valley will be conducting an exciting tour of seven local gardens in Chester and Washington Townships on June 7, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The tour is open to the public and will be a fundraising event for the Club. The day will allow visitors to choose their own tour route and enjoy complimentary light fare in one of the gardens.
The Tour will include a variety of unique styles of gardening from cottage to shade to organic vegetable gardens. Several properties will feature ponds, arbors, and garden art. Woodland plantings, container plantings, succulents, and a variety of specimen trees will also be highlights of the tour. Guides will be available at each property to provide visitors with information on the features of the individual gardens. Horticultural demonstrations by local garden consultants are also planned.

The Club maintains municipal gardens, provides garden therapy workshops for seniors, sponsors a youth gardening group the “Sprouts,” holds educational programs at the Washington Township Public Library, and awards scholarships to local students.
