Usually I would not encourage our readers to congregate in stranger’s yards and loiter in their gardens, but on June 22 there will be an opportunity to enjoy this city’s most beautiful gardens. The fourth annual Fort Thomas Garden Tour will be upon us in one month. The tour will take place on June 22 from 10-5, and June 23 from 12-5.
The specific gardens included in the tour will be revealed the day of the tour, but you can purchase tickets early at the Bank of Kentucky, Ft. Thomas Florist, or here.
The price for tickets is $15 the day of the event (for every ticket), or you can purchase tickets in advance and your first ticket is $15 and every subsequent ticket is only $10.
The Fort Thomas Garden Tour benefits the Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy’s efforts to preserve and protect the wooded areas of the city.
There will be vendors in Tower Park during the event selling garden décor, art, and jewelry. Tower Park will also be where the perennial swap will take place.
The Fort Thomas Garden Tour is a fantastic event for the city, but Stephanie Graves, the organizer for the tour, advised me that they are in desperate need of volunteers. They are looking for 40 “garden greeters” to work in pairs, welcoming ticket holding guests at the featured gardens in 2 ½ hour shifts. The Garden Tour also needs four volunteers to sell tickets on Saturday and Sunday. If you are interested in participating in the garden tour you are encouraged to contact Stephanie Graves at email@example.com or call her at 859-441-6235.
