SUMMIT COUNTY — The 12th Annual Master Gardeners of Summit County Tour of Gardens is set for June 23 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.

Six gardens will be featured on the self-guided tour (examples of two gardens featured in previous tours are shown at right). This year’s tour will require walking some distances to get to the gardens and is not handicapped accessible, according to organizers. Tickets will be available beginning May 1 for $15 at area garden centers.

Master Gardeners of Summit County provides grants to organizations to support educational activities such as teaching underprivileged children to raise their own vegetables and helping community gardeners improve their yields. Master Gardeners are available for presentations to interested organizations on many aspects of gardening and landscaping.

For additional information, call Judy Hirschman 330-678-6919.
