October 15, 2019 —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.
According to Renee Talley, owner of the landscaping company Flowers & More, the event’s presenting sponsor:
“One of the most intriguing aspects of this event is that you see gardening ideas on the tour that are obtainable for the local gardener.”
Gardening enthusiasts had the opportunity to get inspired with new gardening ideas and then purchase some items from the plant sale that took place at Barclay Friends. We especially thank all the garden owners who graciously shared their gardens for this philanthropic event.
