Beauty in Barre!

The Garden and Farm Tour last Saturday, June 23rd, was wonderful: many folks came out to investigate local gardens, the sun was out all day and the rain showers waited until after 4pm, the work of the Land Trust was supported through this fundraising event. Many, many thanks goes out to Ginny Rich for ALL her efforts in putting the successful event together. And it couldn’t have happened without the garden and farm owners that opened up their spaces to share with others. Thank you Jim and Mary Beschta, Patricia Jewell, Tom Reed, Mark Mattson and Judy Lane, Gillian and Charles Peckham, Sue and Steve Clark, Luann and Bill and Look ‘N’ Good Landscaping, Betsy at Stony Hill Farm, and Kate and Jack at Great Rock Alpaca.

Here is a photo montage of the event…
