Master Gardeners' 'Garden Walk' is Sat.

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - You can go behind the fences of private gardens during the 2011 Garden Walk in Gainesville Saturday from 9:00-4:00.

The one-day event (rain or shine) is presented by Hall County Master Gardeners and the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service/Hall County. Tickets are $10 and include visits to five private gardens and one public garden. Tickets will be $15 per person on the day of the event, available at each garden.

“Showcasing the talents of some of our leading master gardeners creates a wonderful garden-tour experience,” said Leslie Johnson, chairman of this year’s garden walk. “The gardeners have been working for the past year to ready their gardens. Each one is distinct in style and design.”

The five private gardens are:
• Lynn Kempler, 4700 Martin Rd., Flowery Branch
• Diane Korzeniewski, 1831 Watuga Dr., Gainesville
• Becky Mensinger, 2061 Riverwood Dr., Gainesville
• Kimberly Riggan, 6542 Vista View Ct., Flowery Branch
• Mary Beth Tharp, 3427 Talking Leaves Trail, Gainesville

“We’re also highlighting our demonstration garden Gardens on Green at the Hall County Board of Education office,” Johnson said. “These public gardens have been designed and installed by our Master Gardeners and serve as an educational resource to the Hall County School System and the community at large.”

Each garden will offer special extras: two gardens will feature educational information, two will serve refreshments, one will feature live music and one will be the site of pass-along plants, free plants shared by Hall County Master Gardeners.

Tickets are available through the Hall County Extension office and from Hall County Master Gardeners.

Complete information is available on the organization’s website at www.hcmgs.com or by calling 770-535-8293.
