Saturday, July 9th from 9-3 the Glenwood Springs Garden Club is hosting a 2nd garden tour. For just $10 you can tour 8 beautiful and unique gardens in and around our town. You can purchase tickets from me or at Glenwood Sew on Grand Ave.
Starting at the first garden, Community Gardens, pick up your armband and informational brochure on the gardens. There are 3 in West Glenwood (2 are right next door to each other on Harvard) and 4 in the downtown core.
Check out the attached poster and please join your fellow gardeners in appreciation of hard and fun work to make our world beautiful and attractive to animals and insects and birds.
