Perry Country Garden and Art Tour
Posted: June 9, 2016
Join Penn State Extension Master Gardeners in Perry County as they showcase one public and five private gardens on the tour, with each garden featuring a wide array of plants and gardening styles. Enjoy these beautiful gardens and learn tips for your own gardens. Penn State Master Gardeners and friends will be at each garden to assist you with parking, guide you through highlighted areas of the gardens, and answer your gardening questions.
An exciting feature of the day is local artist members of the Perry County Council of the Arts will be set up at each garden, some demonstrating their art and selling their work. Enjoy plein air artists, crafters, and musicians sharing their artistic endeavors in the country setting of beautiful Perry County.
Tour booklets contain a map and directions for the six locations and serve as your ticket for the tour. The cost of the tour booklet is $10.00 in advance and $12.00 on the day of the tour. Booklets are available for purchase now at the Perry County Council of the Arts in Newport, Penn State Extension offices in Perry, Cumberland, and Dauphin counties, and select area businesses, including Ashcombe’s, Butcher’s Farm Market, Cabin Creek Country Store, Carlisle Country Living, Espresso Yourself Café, Highland Gardens, and Rosemary House.
