[SULLIVAN COUNTY] – If you are like many Sullivan County homeowners, you spend hours cultivating your garden and landscaping your yard to make just that special outdoor environment that is truly an expression of yourself. Now, you are invited to show off the creative results in your garden by nominating it to be part of the 2nd Annual Sullivan County Garden Tour.
The tour takes place on Saturday, July 10, co-sponsored by SullivanArc and Sullivan Renaissance, as a benefit for SullivanArc’s horticulture program, which allows people with developmental disabilities to build, plant and harvest their own vegetables.
Each garden is unique – whether it is a wild flower garden, shade garden, traditional garden or a one-of-a-kind rustic environment. The tour will select fewer than a dozen private gardens for viewing to help inspire other gardeners, share ideas and to allow others to enjoy their beauty.
If you live in Sullivan County and would like to offer your garden as part of this special tour, contact Kathleen Capozzoli at Sullivan Renaissance at email@example.com or 845-295-2452. This year’s tour will be oriented toward the western portion of the county, but if you have a garden in another location, feel free to suggest it for a future tour.
Volunteers will be provided to assist at each garden. A limited number of tickets will be sold beginning on May 1. The tour is self-guided with location maps available only on the day of the event.
SullivanArc is a not-for-profit agency dedicated to providing support and services to over 800 individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and to their families. Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation. Additional sponsorship provided by Key Bank.
