This past Saturday, July 15th, was a beautiful day for the 23rd Annual Rotary Botanical Gardens Home Garden Tour. With ample sunshine and temperatures in the upper 70 degrees F, we saw over 400 attendees descend upon eight lovely gardens and RBG as well. These photos don’t due the gardens justice but give a taste of what attendees enjoyed throughout the day. This event would not be possible without our wonderful volunteers and the planning of of our Home Garden Tour Committee (Barb T., Marcia N., Marcia M., Jean S., Sue S., Carol K., Cora O., Janet Miller and Dave G.) and RBG staff (Maryam and Hayley). Our volunteers helped as ticket takers and also garden docents. Thanks to our supporting ad sponsors, NBC15, WCLO, AM1380 and our major sponsors: K&W Greenery, DWG Landscaping, LP Tree Service, Agrecol, The Bower City Garden Club, Dvorak Landscape Supply, Creative Gardening and Wirkus Nursery. And of course, our garden owners were so generous with sharing their gardens for this vital fundraising event!
