Burlington Area Garden Club 2019 Garden Tour and Raffle
Garden enthusiasts are invited to view five stunning gardens during the Garden Club's 2019 Tour and raffle which will be held on Sunday, July 14 from 10AM to 4PM. All gardens are in Burlington and surrounding areas. Take a country drive to discover a uniquely sloped 2 1/2 acre property with shade, sun and native prairie. Visit the original Beck's Brewery with secluded gardens of shrubs, flowers, vegetables and hops for brewing beer. Walk around a small city garden filled with beds of colorful lilies, coneflower, iris, rhubarb and raspberries. In Burlington's historic district is a 1929 home with gardens that maintain the integrity of the designs of the period. See old rusty treasures from the past strategically placed in the informal gardens surrounding an 1864 farm house and buildings. Interacting within our gardens will be talented artists from The Gathering displaying their works.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in Burlington at Burlington Garden Center, Richter's Marketplace, Gooseberries Fresh Food Market and at Breezy Hill Nursery on Highway 50 or Milaeger's in Sturtevant. Tour tickets can also be purchased at participating gardens. See burlingtonareagardenclub.com for locations. The event will be held rain or shine.
Raffle items this year will be displayed at each garden and include garden art, baskets, gift cards and many other unique items. Raffle winners will be notified within 24 hours.
Proceeds from the Tour will allow the Garden Club to present grants to local service organizations and scholarships to students studying in horticulture related fields at either the technical college or university level.
