Though keeping your yard alive this year has been a monumental task for anyone living in GA (ask my dried out, bug-infested Hybiscus), 14 amazing gardens around Decatur are still slated to put on a fabulous show for the public this weekend.
Now in its 19th year, the Decatur Garden Tour is cosponsored by the Oakhurst Community Garden and the Decatur Preservation Alliance. As such, you’d except to see the Oakhurst Community Garden, the Woodlands, and Decatur Cemetary (two of DPA’s achievements) on the list. Other highlights include renown gardener, Ryan Gainey’s awe-inspiring property on Emerson Ave and Cozart Smith’s Bonsai garden.
In addition to tours of 10 private and 4 public gardens there will also be scheduled talks/walks with some gardeners, music, cooking demonstrations and a scavenger hunt for the kids! A full schedule of events can be found on the official Decatur Garden Tour website.
Tickets are $15 in advance for Adults and $20 day of. Children are $7 and Seniors (who buy their tickets in advance) pay only $10.
