2020 Tour of Gardens

Posted by Lisa Treen at Jan 13, 2020. No Comments.

In light of the on-going COVID-19 crisis, the Summit County Master Gardeners Volunteers have made the decision to cancel the  2020 Tour of Gardens. This  decision was difficult to make but necessary at this time.  We anticipate being able to offer a tour in 2021 when all of us hope to be able to come together again to celebrate and recognize outstanding gardens in Summit County and the gardeners who create and love them.


Upcoming Garden Events, Tips, Soil Kits, Seed Sharing, Helpful Links, Herb Survey AND MORE.
