URI MASTER GARDENERS

OPEN GARDENS TO VISITORS

Rhode Island’s only statewide Garden Tour
June 20-21

Thirty-four private and public gardens designed and maintained by URI Master Gardener volunteers will be open to the public for the seventh “Gardening with the Masters” tour on June 20-21, 2015.  Rhode Island’s only statewide garden tour, the gardens will be open between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on both days, rain or shine.  This year’s tour will highlight late spring blooming plants rather than the mid-summer gardens featured in previous years.

You will be greeted by knowledgeable URI Master Gardeners at each garden who are ready to share horticulture information and answer your questions. Bring ideas and lessons learned from each garden home with you with the “tips from the garden” and resource links featured in the guidebook!

The “Gardening with the Masters” tour is sponsored by the URI Master Gardener Association, a 750 member, all-volunteer service organization of certified URI Master Gardeners, whose mission focuses on delivering environmentally sound, research-based gardening information to the residents of Rhode Island and surrounding areas.  Guidebooks, which serve as admission for both days and include garden descriptions and directions, must be purchased in advance.  They are available for purchase for $20.00 at garden centers throughout the state. Proceeds from the event will benefit the educational programs of the URI Master Gardener Association.
