Champlain Valley Area garden-lovers can again visit four private gardens as part of the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days Program this year.

The gardens will be open on Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23 from 10 am to 4 pm both days. The admission to each garden is $5.  The Open Days are rain or shine and no reservation is necessary. Please leave your dog at home, but remember to bring a hat, bug repellant, camera, umbrella, sunscreen, and wear comfortable shoes!

New this year is that Shelburne Farms is participating in the tour. In Hinesburg the tours include Paul Wieczoreck’s Garden and Marcia Pierce’s The Hidden Gardens of Lewis Creek Road. Converse Bay Farm and The Gardens at Golden Apple Orchard will be covered in Charlotte. Signs will be placed to guide visitors to each garden.

Please call Marcia Pierce at 482-2118 or Robin Coleburn at 425-4469 for information about the Open Days Program.

The Garden Conservancy started the Open Days Program in 1995 as a means of introducing the public to gardens and to provide easy access to outstanding examples of design and horticultural practice.
