2019 Garden Tour Publicity Article

Garden enthusiasts are invited to view five stunning gardens during the Garden Club’s 2019 Tour and Raffle. On Sunday, July 14, the Tour will be held from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. This fun event will give the public an opportunity to visit unique gardens in the Burlington and surrounding areas. Take a country drive to discover a uniquely sloped 2 ½ acre property with shade, sun and a 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 that 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. Event will be held rain or shine.
