[SULLIVAN COUNTY] – SullivanArc and Sullivan Renaissance are looking for a community to help host the Annual SullivanArc Garden Tour on Saturday, June 29, 2013. This is an opportunity for a chamber of commerce, service organization or community group to feature its area in a widely publicized and popular event.
Each annual tour features approximately eight private flower gardens that are opened to the public for one Saturday during the summer. About 100 tour-goers arrive throughout the day by chartered coach bus and individual vehicles. The host organization works with SullivanArc and Sullivan Renaissance to select gardens and promote the tour.
The 2012 tour featured gardens in and around the Hamlet of Roscoe and was cosponsored by the Rockland-Roscoe Chamber of Commerce. It ended with a wine and cheese reception at the Tennanah Lake Golf and Tennis Club. The 2011 tour presented gardens along the Route 17 corridor and finished with a reception at Bashakill Vineyards in Wurtsboro. The 2010 tour was in western Sullivan County and ended at ECCE Bed and Breakfast in Barryville.
The event is a benefit for SullivanArc. It provides a fun, inspirational and educational experience for garden admirers and enthusiasts, while enhancing the reputation of a community. Volunteers are available to assist at each garden if needed.
To have a community considered, a representative should inquire about the requirements from Kathleen Capozzoli at Sullivan Renaissance, email@example.com or 845-295-2452. A host community will also be chosen for 2014.
