Grand Bay Garden Club is sponsoring a Garden Tour on April 17, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Jane Spicciani (pictured) of the Club said that the one-day-only tour will include "five beautiful gardens, including a Biblical Reproductions Gallery, a local school (Castlen Elementary) and three private gardens in the Grand Bay area." Visitors, she said, can see some of the "best landscaping and planting ideas."
Advance tickets are $8 each, available at Grand Bay and St. Elmo Feed and Seed Stores or through PayPal at grandbayonline.com. Tickets, at $10 per person, can be purchased on the day of the event. A special family rate (family of 3) of $20 is available online. Spicciani said that tickets will include tour times, hours and addresses of the gardens so that visitors can go in any order they please.
Visitors are invited to stop by the Dezauche House Gifts and Vintage Boutique near the library and present their tickets for complimentary refreshments. They can also purchase plants to take home at the Boutique. Spicciani said that donations of plants are welcome--just leave them on the Boutique porch.
Proceeds from the Garden Tour will benefit the future Grand Bay Library/Media Center and the Grand Bay Garden Club. For more information, contact Jane Spicciani at: 865-2014 or visit the Grand Bay Garden Club Facebook group.
