Summer Garden Tours

Garden Tours occur in June, July, and August, and provide an opportunity to see what other gardeners are doing.  Garden Tours are open to dues-current CPGC members only.

Next Stop: YOUR Garden?

The Summer Tours committee is now scheduling garden tour destinations.  Garden locations are selected if they 1.) have more than one area of interest to tour (outdoor garden, irrigation system, high tunnel, raised beds, composting, root cellar, etc…), and 2.) have parking for 5-10 cars.  Tours are organized and led by a CPGC board member, who will provide destination information to attendees.  Let others learn from your experiences - works in progress, as well as finished projects.  Email the Garden Club at cenpengardenclub@gmail.com to nominate your or someone else's garden for a CPGC Garden Tour.
