ABOUT THIS EVENT
Join the Delaware County Master Gardener Association for the Annual Garden Walk on Saturday, May 24, 2023.
Attendees will have the opportunity to tour 7 exceptionally eye-catching private residential and community gardens located in Muncie, Yorktown, and Selma. The landscapes featured among this year’s tour include:
• Charming Country Garden
• Bluebird Cottage Garden
• Ross Community Center’s Rose Tranquility Garden
• Colorful Begonia Garden
• Serenity Garden
• Peaceful Koi Garden
• Awakening Garden
Gardens will be open to the public from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. This is a rain-or-shine event.
Each landscape will feature innovative, unique, and sustainable gardening trends, themes, and strategies that attendees can use to transform their own yard, garden, or backyard into an outdoor oasis. A few of the themes and topics that attendees will discover include:
Planting for Pollinators and Wildlife
Plant Selection and Color Balance
Gardening in Small Spaces: Raised Bed and Vertical Gardening
Hardscape and Paver Design
Aquatic Bog Garden
Extension Master Gardeners and homeowners will be present at each garden to answer your questions.
In addition to the tour, several local artists will be painting landscape scenes from the gardens en plein air. Watch as they capture the beauty of the garden.
Conservation Tales, a children’s book series that educates young readers on wildlife conservation, will be available for purchase at the Serenity Garden. Attendees can also receive a free blackgum and bald cypress tree seedling (while supplies last) and be entered into a drawing to win one of several great garden prizes.
Tickets are $5 per person in advance of the tour, or $7 per person on June 24. Children 12 and under are free.
Pre-sale tickets may be purchased at Berrywinkle in Muncie or by contacting a local Delaware County Extension Master Gardener (firstname.lastname@example.org). Tickets will also be available at the DCMGA booth at the Yorktown Farmers Market on Friday May 26
Tickets can be purchased on the day of the tour at the G&M Garden Center (101 W Royerton Rd.), Berry Winkle (115 S Tillotson Ave.), the Ross Community Center (1110 W 10th St.), or at any of the participating gardens.
