Putnam County Gardens Needed for Fundraiser

Secret Garden Tour set for June 6

Partners with PARC, a nonprofit dedicated to securing the financial future of people with disabilities, will host its annual Putnam County Secret Garden Tour on Saturday, June 6, and gardens are needed.

This annual garden tour fundraiser, which supports programs and services for children and adults with autism, disabilities and special needs, was named “Best Garden Tour in the Hudson Valley” by Hudson Valley Magazine and is esteemed and renowned throughout the area.

The tour, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 6, is a self-guided driving tour of gardens. Tour organizers are looking for unique, memorable and special gardens to profile.

A total of 12 gardens from across Putnam County are needed for this year’s event. Tour organizers are looking for formal gardens, charming country gardens, water gardens, alpine gardens, perennial flowering landscapes, rose gardens and much more. All garden owners on this year’s tour will be given a trip for four to Cancun, Mexico (accommodations only, for five days and four nights) as an incentive for being on the tour.

To make an appointment to have your garden visited by the Putnam County Secret Garden Tour organizers, call 845-278-7272, ext. 2287, or email garden photos to rand_otten@putnamarc.org.
