2018 Forbes Library Garden Tour

This year’s Forbes Library Garden Tour, featuring seven gardens, is June 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. rain or shine.

This is the 25th anniversary of the tour, so organizers have selected four gardens that have been featured in the past as well as three new ones.

Tickets are $15 in advance at Forbes Library, Cooper’s Corner and State Street Fruit Store in Northampton; Hadley Garden Center in Hadley; Bay State Perennial Farm in Whately and North Country Landscapes & Garden Center in Westhampton.

They are also available on the day of the tour for $20 at Forbes Library only. Details are available at https://forbeslibrary.org/friends/events/garden-tour/.

Organizers also are seeking volunteers to help with the tour. They will work from either 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. at one of the gardens either taking tickets or serving as garden guides. Those who wish to serve as guides should have some knowledge of perennial gardens in order to answer questions from visitors.

Those interested should contact Deena Sarvet at 413-320-2804 or email her at dsarvet@gmail.com.
