Mark your calendar for the July garden tour in St. Andrew's

Our garden tour is Saturday July 16th.  There will be 7 gardens this year.  We are going to start off in the a.m. with a flower arranging lesson from a well know ikabana teacher.  That is Japanese flower arranging.  We are also going to have a flower arranging contest.......VERY CASUAL!!!!!  Pick some blooms and foliage etc from your gardens and bring them in to the Anglican Church Hall on King Street and the folks who have bought a ticket will vote for their fav.  Sounds like fun, eh!!!!  There will be great prizes.  Will also be a strawberry shortcake social from 3 to 6 where people can get a tax receipt for their tickets.  All our funds go to Passamaquoddy Lodge where they are building a therapy garden for the residents!!!!

  1. Sounds like fun--great to have a hands-on event. Is it only open to St Andrews garden club gardeners, or also those from away? That's interesting that Passamaquoddy Lodge is making a therapy garden for the residents, in addition to the Kingsbrae Garden Therapy Garden with its free access for the residents. The power of plants!!
