This is going to be good. Quincy Preserves presents Behind the Garden Gate. This tour will take place on Saturday, June 27 from 10-2 in conjunction with the Midsummer Arts Faire.

Refreshments will be available in one of the gardens during the tour. Proceeds from the tour will benefit the Quincy Preserves Scholarship Fund, along with the Facade Program.

Each of the homes on the tour feature gardens that were artistically planted and maintained by the homeowners themselves and are not entirely professionally landscaped.

This offers tour goers a wide variety of personal tastes unique to each garden. Several homes on the tour have water elements that provide the soothing noise that also gives a cooling effect on a summer afternoon. Music and wind chimes are available in other gardens offering elements.
