No Garden Walk will be held this year. Unfortunately, this event also needed to be cancelled, however the hope is to have it next year with the gardens that were planned for this year.

Our monthly programs are cancelled for the remainder of the season.  If that would change, we will notify you immediately. We have been contacting the speakers lined up and rescheduling them for next year…  More information will follow on this as well.
