Tuffy P (AKA Sheila Gregory) and her friend Nadia Stelmach are organizing the first Long Branch by the lake Garden Tour for June 18, 2016. Right now Tuffy is working on setting up a blog site for the event.
A number of gardeners in the community have agreed to open up their gardens to the public on tour day, between 10 and 4 PM. Tickets for the tour will be on sale at some local businesses (hey local businesses – who wants to participate?). Tickets will be $10 and 100% of the proceeds will be a donation to LAMP Community Health Centre.
Tuffy P came up with the idea of organizing the tour after attending some awesome garden tours over the past couple years. These include Through the Garden Gate, here in Toronto, the Canadian Cancer Society Spring Garden Tour in Mississauga, and the remarkable Garden Walk Buffalo. Tuffy and her pal Toni also went on a garden adventure road trip through Quebec last summer.
This is a great opportunity to celebrate our beautiful community. I’ll be posting updates here periodically, and will let you all know when the website is up. If you have any questions about the even, you’re welcome to leave a comment here or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I’ll ask Tuffy P to respond to your directly.
