The Chapel Hill Garden Club presents the 2012 Chapel Hill Spring Garden Tour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 14, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 15.
To celebrate the unique diversity of gardens in greater Chapel Hill, the Spring Garden Tour will feature eight local gardens. Ranging from hidden bungalow gardens to majestic landscapes, spacious rural wooded gardens to urban design, the tour will showcase the “miracles of spring” in both elegant and whimsical presentations.
In addition, the tour this year includes visits to the North Carolina Botanical Garden and the Mary Scroggs Elementary School Student Garden in Southern Village.
The Botanical Garden features native plants, and 10 local artists will be painting “plein air” in the Garden during the tour.
The student garden at Scroggs Elementary enhances learning about sustainable gardening through a seed-to-sow experience, engendering a sense of place at an early age.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 on the day of tour. Children accompanied by an adult are free.
