Thank you to all those who attended the
5th Annual Town & Country Garden Tour!
This year’s tour saw a big increase in the number of out of town tour attendees. We welcomed over 200 visitors from beyond the Cottage Grove area, so we think the word is out: the Town & Country Garden Tour is one of Lane County’s premier garden tours!
We are deeply grateful to all those who volunteered to make the Town & Country Garden Tour a success.
First and foremost we must thank the gardeners who opened their beautiful gardens to tour goers. Their hard work and passion for gardening was obvious and without them there simply could not be a tour.
We are also grateful to the more than 40 volunteers who helped by checking and selling tickets, answering questions and collecting raffle tickets. Their involvement is what makes the Town & Country Garden Tour truly a community event.
Our ticket sellers are key to the tour’s success. Territorial Seed Company, The Bookmine and Shady Oaks Nursery in Cottage Grove along with Down to Earth, Bloomer’s and Johnson Brothers Nursery in Eugene all support the tour by making it easy to purchase tickets.
And finally, thank you to our sponsors, Territorial Seed Company and Peacehealth’s Cottage Grove Medical Center without whom our tour would not be possible.
Mark you Calendar!
Planning has already begun for the 2014 Town & Country Garden Tour! Next year’s tour will be a few weeks earlier, so please mark your calendar for Saturday June 28th, 2014. We hope to see you there!
All proceeds from the Town & Country Garden Tour support South Lane Mental Health’s Client Needs Fund, which provides our uninsured clients with, for example:
- A bus ticket to visit a parent
- Money to purchase a library card
- A bicycle
Thank you for your support!
