Erie Garden Tour Growing

Posted: Updated:
 If you're looking to beautify the curb appeal of your home, this weekend offered a chance to learn from some of the best gardeners in the area. It was the third annual Garden Tour of Erie. It's sponsored by the Bay City Gardeners.  The tour featured 38 private gardens.  Over 20 were new on the tour this year.
The tour also spotlighted four public gardens in the inner city.
Bay City President Chris DeCrease said the seed of the idea to celebrate Erie gardens, actually came from Buffalo, New York.  "We visited Buffalo's garden tours a couple of years back and thought why can't we do this, bring the community together and spark neighborhood revitalization and that's kind of what were are hoping to do around gardening," said DeCrease.

Taking the tour costs only $5.00.  Those interested could pick up maps at L.E.A.F. or the  JMC  Ice Arena, and tour the gardens self-guided or by trolley.   Profits provide internships for budding gardeners.  We asked what can people expect to see on the tours?  According to DeCrease, "The Gamut...from somebody who likes to do a few things but has very creative ideas to perfectionists who have every rare plant and not one weed."
