Garden Tour Succes. So many thanks!
WHAT A DAY, right?!? If you went on the Nature Meets Art Garden Tour – wasn’t it just a glorious day? The Garden Hosts, gardens, artists, volunteers, guests … and perfect weather — all combined to make the perfect day to binge on the lovely gardens of Monroe.
We are ALREADY planning next year! We’re hoping for more volunteers and helpers! Contact us if you’d like to help!
Volunteers made up the steering committee for this great event. We heard SO MANY compliments — comparing our event to Atlanta and Athens and raving about our Tour. Everyone had a great time savoring the beauty, learning about gardening and enjoying the plein air painters (and buying some art!).
So many folks to thank, as this was a pretty big production!
