The Shippan Point Garden Club hosts an annual tour of member and other neighborhood gardens. The event typically occurs in June, includes 4-5 gardens and is followed by a luncheon at a member’s home. This is a lovely way to share the enjoyment and beauty of our gardening efforts and to promote discussion and new ideas.
