The Lexington Council Garden Club's “Open Gates to Bluegrass Living” Garden Tour, Saturday, June 1, and Sunday, June 2, 2013, will celebrate 10 diverse gardens throughout Lexington. Whether you are a gardener, a homeowner, or just enjoy beauty and tranquility, come join us--rain or shine--and visit some of Lexington’s most inspiring gardens, both large and small.
This is our biennial fundraising event to provide grants to the community and scholarships to University of Kentucky students who are majoring in horticulture and allied fields. Grant recipients from the 2011 tour included a butterfly garden, a rain garden, a memorial art garden, a community vegetable garden and watershed improvement.
Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 on the day of the tour. Tickets may be purchased from garden club members, at area independently-owned garden centers, and at the garden sites on the day of the tour.
