Lana Westcott of Lana Westcott Events asked me to post this news release about the Kennebunks Garden Tour on July 13, 2013.
KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (June 27, 2013) – Guests planning to attend the annual Private Gardens of the Kennebunks Tour on Saturday, July 13 from 10AM to 4PM should plan to buy their tickets before July 1. That’s the deadline for taking advantage of the early bird discounted ticket price of $25. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour nine of the most intriguing gardens in the Kennebunks. The Tour will also feature gardening expert Paul Parent. Guests will have the opportunity to engage in discussions with Paul speak on a variety of garden topics.
Details of the gardens are being kept under wraps. “All of the gardens have their own unique stories and are sure to inspire,” notes Pianka. Volunteer docents will be available at each location to welcome guests, offer refreshments and help answer questions about each property. One of the properties is part of an historical location, along the river. Another is part of a private school, where children learn the value of gardening, growing one’s own food and eating healthy. Another will feature a fairies’ garden.
