A Garden tour of Lewisburg—2019
The Lewisburg Garden Tour is back! On Saturday, June 1, from 10am to 3pm, Lewisburg Garden Club members will lead visitors through six superb gardens in Lewisburg and New Berlin, according to Amanda Unzueta, chair of A Garden Tour of Lewisburg.
"We are pleased to bring back a fun and relaxing event that many have missed and others will be enjoying for the first time. The garden tour is a very special way for families and the community to come together and enjoy a lovely day," Amanda says.
"The garden tour is also a great event for children who will find hidden animals and garden creatures tucked away in one of the gardens and will see the colorful work of artists and artisans who are stationed at each garden displaying and selling their creations," Amanda says.
"The tour will include four gardens in downtown Lewisburg; they are the gardens of Anne and Bob Murcek at 103 S. Front Street, April Fairweather at 27 S. Water Street, Bernadine Richard at 31 S. Front Street, and the Copper Beech Manor garden at 17 Market Street.
The New Berlin gardens are those of Kathy Frey and Paul Yakubick of 200 Laura Lane and John
and Nancy Showers of 317 Vine Street.
The gardens vary in their design from formal French to water gardens and friendly sidewalk companion gardens," Amanda says. The tour is easy to navigate with directions to each garden on the back of the tickets, as well as maps at each garden.
Visitors, who are welcome to view the gardens beginning at 10am on June 1, will receive a Garden Tour of Lewisburg brochure with descriptions of each garden.Throughout the day, Lewisburg Garden Club members will be on hand to guide visitors through the gardens and to answer questions. Light refreshments will be served at each site.
Tickets, at $10 each, are on sale at the Purple Platypus, 335 Market Street, Lewisburg, The Mercantile, 319 Market Street, Lewisburg, and Reiff's Greenhouse, but are also available at all gardens on the day of the tour.
