15th Secret Gardens Tour & Plant Sale of West Chester
September 7, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
This event provides the opportunity to visit exclusive private home gardens in the Everhart Park area of the borough while highlighting the talent of local musicians and artists performing throughout the day at many of the gardens. Each year, our plant sale grows in popularity, providing an expansive variety of perennial plants for purchase. Secret Gardens is known as a memorable one-of-a-kind garden event that attracts the attention of more than 300 garden enthusiasts yearly in search of vibrant seasonal color, landscaping authenticity and gardening inspiration.
All proceeds raised supports the horticultural therapy program at Barclay Friends. This program, lead by full-time horticultural therapist Cheryl Bjornson, enriches residents’ lives. Spending time outside surrounded by nature stimulates the senses and can have a significant positive effect on residents. Tending to plants cultivates a sense of self-worth. Tasting a cherry tomato grown from one of our gardens or feeding home-grown lettuce to our therapy rabbit, Marshmallow, can engage the mind and make a resident’s day.
