Thinking Green ~ A Garden Tour

As some of you may know I have been working for the last six months at a new job with the Child Abuse Prevention Council of York County. We have been busy organizing a very popular "Private Gardens of the Kennebunks" Garden Tour. If you happen to be in Maine or thinking of coming up to visit the weekend of July 17th, join us at our 16th Annual Garden Tour. This yearly event takes place this year on one day - Saturday, July 17th from 10:00 to 4:00. The self-guided tour features nine unique private home gardens in the Kennebunk and Kennebunkport area. You may view the gardens at your own pace, in any order you choose. The tour allows participants to gather landscaping ideas and view perennial and annual plants that may enhance their own gardens.
This year's special Guest Paul Parent, host of the popular Sunday morning syndicated radio show “The Paul Parent Garden Club” will share his private garden as a bonus on the tour and offer gardening tips, as well as answering questions on gardening in New England. All the proceeds from the tour benefit the numerous programs our agency offers to the greater York County area of Maine. FMI visit our website at "Kids Free to Grow" by clicking on the logo above. I hope you can make it and be sure to say hello if you do!
