Plan now to spend Saturday, June 9 visiting six lovely private gardens and enjoying one of the area’s favorite early-summer traditions — the Ann Arbor Garden Walk!
Meet homeowner gardeners and be inspired by their labors of love. A quiet, flower-filled courtyard, a city lot overflowing with edibles, and lush beds surrounding a historic home, the gardens on the 2012 Garden Walk promise eye-catching ideas and colorful surprises.
Participating members of the Ann Arbor Women Artists group will present a sale of original artworks created from the 2012 gardens over the past year, capturing the beauty of these unique landscapes. A Garden Marketplace, presented by Artistica in Dexter, will offer a variety of handcrafted garden-related merchandise, including pottery, jewelry, garden art, and more.
Proceeds from the 2012 Garden Walk will benefit Growing Hope, an Ypsilanti-based non-profit dedicated to helping people improve their lives and communities through gardening and access to healthy food. Tickets go on sale in May
