Our Village Garden Walk will again feature a “Fairy” feature! In addition to our many residential gardens open to the public, YOU are invited to plant, decorate and enter a minigarden of your own in our contest! Plant and decorate a portable mini-garden of any kind or theme, be it a dish garden/tea cup garden/super hero garden or fairy garden, etc., bring it to the Garden Walk Welcome Tent the day of the Garden Walk (July 16). Pre-registration is encouraged so we know how many to expect. Your creation must be small enough for YOU to carry from the car to the park. Look online for thousands of ideas. Buckets, old dish pans, sand pails, vintage suitcases, broken pots, etc. can be used as your container.
It’s a great opportunity for parents & grandparents to introduce the little ones to the wonders and fun of gardening. It doesn’t have to be only “fairies”. Make a Lego garden, nursery rhyme garden, dinosaur garden, Bills garden, etc. You yourself may not have access to digging in an outside garden, but can still have fun creating a portable mini-garden for your balcony, patio or windowsill. Visit our local nurseries and garden centers for mini plants and decorations or make your own decorations. Go online. The sky is the limit! It’s all free and open to the public.
