Garden Discoveries: An Educational Tour

The Outagamie County Master Gardeners Association will be hosting their 4th Annual “Garden Discoveries: an Educational Garden Tour” on Saturday, June 16, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. 

The public is invited to tour six select gardens in the Fox Cities. Each garden offers a unique horticultural lesson and all are truly great examples of sound gardening principals and beauty. 

For a $5 entry fee (to further develop the Community Garden Partnership) and two items of non-perishable food (to be donated to local food pantries), guests will experience beautiful area gardens with an opportunity to learn horticultural lessons during each visit. Admission and food items will be collected the day of Garden Discoveries at the first garden visited.
