Fellow Gardening Enthusiasts,
The Ewing Green Team, the West Trenton Garden Club and local Girl Scout Troop #70138 look forward to welcoming you to our 2016 Through the Garden Gate Tour of Ewing and its environs! Following upon the success of a first tour run last year by the Girl Scouts, we are extremely excited to showcase even more gardens in town.
This second garden tour of Ewing is being held to promote our mutual causes of beautification, sustainability, and youth development. It is our belief that showcasing some of Ewing’s noteworthy gardens is a great way to help us engage more people in beautifying our town. A beautiful town elicits pride among its residents and helps to build community. We believe that it can all begin with one garden at a time.
The 2016 Through the Garden Gate Tour is a self-guided ticketed event, featuring gardens throughout Ewing, with a couple of stand-out gardens from neighboring towns. The tour date is set for Saturday, June 11th with gardens open from 10am to 5pm.
Start out at the Ewing Township Historic Preservation Society Kitchen Garden at 27 Federal City Road. Purchase your ticket and receive a pamphlet containing the name of each garden, its location, as well as a brief description, and a map. As of this writing there are approximately 20 gardens to tour so we have expanded the tour hours, but you may need to make some hard choices. We hope that you will enjoy as many as you can.
Look for additional information on this page as we firm up participants and details of the day.
