Garden tour highlights Main Street Arts’ new Garden Arts program

SAXTONS RIVER — Three gardens in the Saxtons River/Rockingham area are open for the Main Street Arts Garden Tour on the weekend of June 10 and 11. The Garden Tour is part of a larger program on the art of gardening that MSA is launching this year.

Participants may enjoy different arts as they tour the gardens: live music, a plein air painting demonstration, and sculpture. Instruction will be given on how to make a garden arch from saplings, and visitors can peruse a flea market of used garden tools, books, and accessories at the Main Street Arts building where refreshments will also be available for purchase.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 on the days of the tour. The Garden Tour ticket price includes one raffle ticket for gift certificates generously donated by Gardener's Supply Company and local nurseries, including Harlow's, Allen Brothers, Walker's, and Morningstar Nurseries. Additional tickets will increase the odds of winning and are available online and at MSA on the tour days.
