SULLIVAN COUNTY – Many private gardens in and around the Town of Neversink will be on display on Saturday, July 9, 2016 during the Eighth Annual SullivanArc Garden Tour. The tour will benefit SullivanArc and is hosted by SullivanArc and Sullivan Renaissance with support from local Neversink organizations. Neversink boasts scenic reservoir views and nearly 75 barn quilts, a Neversink Renaissance project that began in 2006.
Roughly eight to ten beautiful gardens will be accessible for viewing either by group bus tour or individual ticket holders. Tickets for the Rolling V guided coach bus tour are $40 per person and includes the driver’s tip, a tour guide, door prizes and a snack. Individuals who wish to drive on their own may purchase self-guided tour tickets for $25 per person. Maps will be available on the day of the tour to all registered participants. A complimentary wine and cheese reception for all ticket holders and garden owners will take place after the tour.
