This year’s magical garden tour on Thursday, July 15, features four private gardens, the Hofbrau garden, and a botanical lab and community gardens in the area west of Long Lake, through Interlochen and Grawn. The gardens will each be identified by green banners.

The Friendly Garden Club of Traverse City was organized in 1923 with a mission to promote a love for gardening, landscape and floral design; aid in the protection of native trees, plants and wildlife; and to encourage environmental responsibility and civic beautification. Proceeds from Garden Walk tickets allow the Garden Club to continue serving the Traverse City community by designing and planting the Logo Garden at the Open Space, maintaining a Children’s Sensory Garden at The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park, offering yearly grants to selected projects and more.
