The 20th Annual Westminster Garden Tour

The Westminster Cares Garden Tour celebrates its 20th anniversary this year on July 8 and 9. The centerpiece of the tour is Gordon and Mary Hayward’s garden in Westminster West. In addition to the Haywards’, the Westminster Center School garden, Hope Roots Flower Farm and a very special private garden in Putney will be on the tour. The tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Tickets are $16, or $30 for two, and are good for both days of the tour. Several special programs are planned. Eric and Ines Bass, founders of Sandglass Theater, will present two short puppetry pieces on Saturday at the Haywards’ garden. At the Westminster Institute, landscape designer Julie Moir-Messervy will give a garden design talk and workshop on Saturday, and on Sunday there will be a bee-keeping workshop by Nancy Frye. Entry to these special events is included with your ticket.
