Joy Garden Tour
The Joy Garden Tour, set for July in Cashiers, is a marvelous tonic for the stresses of this Covid-battered year.
The Joy Garden Tour in Cashiers showcases the area’s most spectacular gardens. This biennial event always features diverse landscapes from peaceful woodland settings to intimate cottage gardens.
The theme for the tour in July this summer is Wonders of Waterfalls and Wildflowers. Proceeds from the event benefit The Village Green, Cashiers’ 13+ acre privately conserved park for public enjoyment.
Like most events impacted by prevailing measures associated with the coronavirus pandemic, organizers of this year’s tour are making plans to ensure the safety of guests, volunteers, and garden owners. Tour benefactors will have an exclusive VIP experience that includes private and semi-private tours of the featured gardens July 16-17. They will also be invited to a special epicure picnic supper in the park at The Village Green on Thursday, July 15. Benefactor packages are limited. For information about benefactor packages, email [email protected] to learn more.
During the weekend of the Joy Garden Tour, a pop-up boutique shopping experience will be each day from 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. at The Village Green Commons on Frank Allen Road.
The Village Shops includes more than 35 select vendors with items to appeal to garden and floral enthusiasts, but the shops also include a discriminating collection of personalized items, gourmet food, distinctive home accents, beauty products, clothing, jewelry and more.
The Joy Garden Tour is named in memory of Carolyn Joy Dean who gave generously to help establish The Village Green in the center of Cashiers. Through the dedicated efforts of volunteers who share her spirit, Joy Garden Tour raises money for conservation and improvements to The Village Green for area residents and visitors to enjoy.
Additional information about other plans for Joy Garden Tour will be announced in early May. Be sure to subscribe to The Village Green regular email newsletter to receive updates. To learn about the tour, including the shops, as well as The Village Green visit villagegreencashiersnc.com.
