Franklin County Garden Treasures - 2012 Fall Garden Tour

It's not too late!

Tomorrow, Sunday, September 9th from noon to 5 p.m., Franklin County Master Gardeners present their annual garden tour, (click on the link for pictures and posts from previous years.)

This year, the theme is “Franklin County Garden Treasures” featuring gardens in the Fayetteville, Mont Alto and Penn National areas.

Seven gardens will be featured this year, with a wide variety of sizes and styles. Rough and uneven landscaping may be encountered, and so comfortable, low-heeled walking shoes are recommended. Tickets are $10 per person and include site directions and garden descriptions.

Tickets are available at each of the gardens, so you can start anywhere on the tour.
MG Jean Schlecht Garden
Penn National gardens will include those of Patti Nitterhouse and Dennis Zimmerman, Jean and Carmen Patten, Jean and Ron Schlecht and the Penn National Community Gardens.

Nitterhouse/Zimmerman Garden
Other Fayetteville locations include Salinda and Ralph Feldman in the Conocodell neighborhood and the Norlo Park garden maintained by the Conococheague Audubon Society. The final garden in the tour will be the Arboretum on the campus of Penn State Mont Alto.

With a variety of garden sizes and styles, “Franklin County Garden Treasures” will serve as inspiration for area gardeners planning their next year’s gardens. Visitors may view the gardens in any order, throughout the afternoon.
