Secret Gardens of West Chester Tour

The 13th Annual Secret Gardens Tour of West Chester held Saturday, Sept. 9, was the most successful garden tour yet!  The tour and plant sale raised $18,118, with more than 378 tickets sold in support of horticultural therapy for residents.  The tour gave a fun peek into the gardens of 15 local West Chester garden owners, plus our own six gardens at Barclay Friends.

Garden Party

Residents, family members, and supporters of Barclay Friends came together for the annual Garden Party in the natural serenity of Anne’s Garden.  Attendees dined on savory hors d’oeuvres and delectable desserts made by the Barclay Friends Dining Services team.  This event is held annually the night preceding the Secret Gardens tour and provides an opportunity for Barclay Friends to thank supporters, families and friends, as well as to highlight the importance of our horticultural therapy program.
