GARDEN TOUR 2015 was a great success. The brief rain showers added some much needed water to the soil and didn’t seem to deter over 170 people who toured the gardens. Watch for our 2016 Garden Tour, tentatively scheduled for the Union area. Contact the R. Jeanne Rehwaldt at 360-427-9670 Ext. 688 if you have a garden you would like to be considered for the tour.
