Plan now for the Davidson County Garden Tour June 1-2

The Davidson County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Association is sponsoring its 15th Garden Tour June 1-2.

The featured gardens this year are east of Lexington and south of Hwy. 64. The hours will be 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday and 1-5 p.m. on Sunday.

Master Gardener docents will be at each location to guide and/or answer questions about the gardens as well as general gardening queries.

Ticket price is $15.  Visitors can attend both days and/or tour each garden more than once.

The tour is both a fundraiser to help with community projects and a public education/service project, providing advice and inspiration to other gardeners.

For more information, including the garden sites, the NC State Extension Master Gardener Volunteers, Davidson County Facebook Page and https://davidson.ces.ncsu.edu/ can be consulted as well as 336-210-5365 or 336-250-3014.
