Garden Tours

Sue Weil's Harbor Side GardenJune 17, 2015 Members’ Garden Tour

The annual tour of Member’s gardens was on June 17, 2015.  The tour began with a champagne breakfast at Nolini Barretto’s garden at 9:00a.m. and ended at Sue Weil’s garden for a delicious lunch. Please enjoy the photo gallery of the tour. Click here for gallery.

Like most gardeners, our members love to visit gardens in our own neighborhood or wherever we travel.  In the Spring, we hold a tour of our own members’ gardens followed by lunch. It is not a fundraiser, but simply a way to share the enjoyment and beauty of our gardening efforts.  See more photos of gardens on Shippan Point.

The Club often takes a bus to the Philadelphia Flower Show and carpools to the Connecticut State Flower & Garden Show. Go to FLOWER SHOWS for more detail and up to date trip schedules,

Members frequently carpool to nurseries, gardens and flower shows held in the tri-state area.
