Garden Club presents Garden Tour June 9
Last updated 5/24/2007 at Noon
FALLBROOK- The Fallbrook Garden Club will present its 3rd Annual Garden Tour on Saturday, June 9, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. and it is expected to be better than ever!
Eight outstanding gardens will be featured that demonstrate the creativity possible in gardens of all sizes - from petite to grand landscapes. Included will be the La Paloma School garden. This garden is an educational project that has been based on a partnership between the school and volunteers from the Fallbrook Garden Club. Enjoy an opportunity to see what children have done as they learn about growing plants and the foods we eat.
While every garden will provide ideas and diversity of design, the following is a glimpse into what participants in the tour can expect to see:
The Mallen/Vincent Garden – This beauty sprawls over two acres and is an eclectic mixture of plant varieties including cactus, succulents, palms and tropicals. Besides a conifer forest and Australian natives, you will also find a greenhouse for specialty plants. Look for the interesting garden structures and ornaments that accent this design.
The Anderson/Olson Garden – A notable presentation that has been profiled in numerous magazines and books. Intricate pathways wind through a landscape of succulents, cacti and drought tolerant plants all complemented by unique artworks.
The Matthiessen Garden – Take an opportunity to stroll through gorgeous blooming flowers and vegetable gardens while enjoying the many birds that dwell in the 30-plus birdhouses. Feel refreshed by the beautifully designed rock waterfall and mature canopy of trees while viewing rolling green lawns and beautiful hillside vistas.
To enjoy the Garden Tour, visit the Fallbrook Village Square at Main and Alvarado in downtown Fallbrook on June 9 as early as 9 a.m. Tickets are $20 (or two for $35) and include a map to the gardens. There will be raffle opportunities and the club will sell plants and present educational exhibits. A select number of vendors will have garden related items for sale.
All of the profits from the Garden Tour go to scholarships for deserving local students and other community projects. For more information, call Sandi LeMasters at (760) 723-3783.
