Tour with Gardening Friends -- Tours for 2021!

I join you all in feeling like our wings are clipped as travel has ground to a screeching halt. In the meantime, there are some wonderful virtual tours online of any sight you can imagine! If you want help finding just the right virtual tour (often there is a small charge to help the guides in this difficult time), I’ll point you in the right direction.

With great anticipation and optimism, several wonderful tours are in the works. Even though it is just a tad too early to register for these tours, I invite you to be placed on the interest list to be given first chance at signing up for these tours.   Contact me at tours@ctgardenclubs.org
