Walk and Talk Home Gardens

The second year of “Walking and Talking Home Gardens!” is underway for 2015.  We enjoyed 3 amazing tours last year (noted below), and have a few already lined up for 2015.  These tours are free to attend, informal, fun, and a way to share our gardening passion with no pressure.

Every homeowner has techniques they have tried with successes and/or some failures to share – We don’t obsess about failures – Its all part of the learning process. We are not picky on must seeing “the perfect garden.” These Walk and Talks are designed to share information, learn from each other, and meet new gardening friends – and again, its all free to attend.

Want to volunteer to share your gardening experienced at your home?

Don’t be shy – Join the Fun.  As a hostess, you meet new gardening friends, and may even get a free plant exchange out of the day.  We all know, gardeners love to talk about their gardens – it is a form of our entertainment, we’d love to hear what you have learned! There is absolutely no high pressure for these informal Walk and Talk tours. We’d love to meet you and hear your story about your gardens of any shape or size. The goal is to share what we learn about our own gardens – small or large, simple or fancy, let’s have that conversation as a group informally – but keep it informative.

This homeowner has a beautiful three-tiered pond garden. We enjoyed the tour so much, she offered to do it again in 2015, and this year, she has also installed a brand new bee hive at her property, so we will hear about her experience of having bees near her pond gardens to help benefit pollinators. We hope you will join us in August for this fun free Walk and Talk Home Gardens tour in Enfield, CT.
