The Chichester Garden Club is proud to announce its first biennial “Historic Chichester Garden Tour” being held Saturday, July 20, 2013.  Tickets are $12 in advance/$15 day of event and are available at Chichester Historical Society on Tuesdays 9-12, Town Library (M&W 2:30-8:30, T&T 10-1:30, F 1:30-4:30, Sat 9-12) and online [email protected].  Only cash and checks can be accepted. 


Twelve distinctive gardens have been selected to offer a cross-section of different types of gardens.    See gardens of all types - vegetable, flower; shade, sun; fern; herb; specialty.  Some are wide open while others are secluded.  Some have hidden treasures in the woods awaiting discovery; others sport hilltop views.  Most have sculptures and statuary; and still others have architectural and water features.


Attendees will begin their day by parking at the Grange Hall and crossing the street to the Historical Society (49 Main Street) to register for the Tour.  Each registrant will receive a numbered ticket and a Garden Tour program; a detailed direction sheet is also available.  Host Site #1 begins with the Memorial Gardens at the Grange.  Concluding the Tour with Host Site #12, participants will return to the Historical Society to view a Heritage Garden, capturing days of old combining beauty with practicality with culinary and medicinal herbs.  Please feel free to stroll through the Museum and Museum Gift shop.


To complement the Garden Tour, a Monet style sidewalk café will be offered on the lawn.  Please stay to relax and enjoy a delicious and diverse selection of refreshments which will meet most dietary needs.  View original artwork on display and for sale; speak with the local artists at the Floral Art Exhibition.  A Plant Sale is also available. 


The Chichester Garden Club started in the fall of 2012; and in January 2013, it became more formalized and was asked to participate in outreach projects:  1) to assist with landscape design for the Grange Hall; and 2) to help maintain the Town Library gardens.  Since finding new members was a priority, it was decided that a garden tour would help build interest, as well as further the club’s objective to encourage more flower and vegetable gardens in Chichester, to promote the love of gardening, civic beautification and environmental responsibility through education and example.  


The garden club has been working closely with its partners Chichester Historical Society, Chichester Heritage Commission, Town Library and Chichester Photography Club to ensure a successful event.  It was felt that collaborating with a variety of town organizations for a community wide event would not only be a successful endeavor, it would bring the town organizations closer together, encourage working together for a common goal and building a sense of community.  Ticket proceeds will benefit these five organizations.


Join us for a delightful day at the Historic Chichester Garden Tour on July 20th!
