Joy Garden Tour

The Joy Garden Tour is a biennial event to raise financial support for The Village Green. The tour inspires gardeners of every level of experience and enthusiasm. The Joy Garden Tour features a guest speaker event, a special patron party and garden shops with 35 vendors offering plants, garden related merchandise, unique gifts, antiques and more. The highlight is a day spent touring select and stunning private gardens in the Cashiers area. Noted Plein Air Artists will paint in these gardens with the paintings available for purchase.

The Joy Garden Tour theme for 2019 is Garden and “Bee” Happy. The tour of gardens will be Friday, July 19th. Be sure to sign up for the mailing list or update your address if needed to receive ticket order information in the mail.
