WEST AKRON — Tickets are now on sale for “Tea at Stan Hywet: Mini Gardens Galore With Our Horticulture Team,” which will take place May 31 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Tea, tea sandwiches and dessert will be served while Shelley Funai, Stan Hywet grounds manager, demonstrates the art of creating inventive miniature gardens for the yard or tablescape.

Kits and other accessories will be available for purchase in Molly’s Shop. The tea also will include a self-guided tour of the Manor House, located at 714 N. Portage Path.

Funai has a degree in landscape horticulture from The Ohio State University and has been on the staff of Stan Hywet’s horticulture team for almost 11 years. She is a member of the Ohio Landscape Association and in her free time, she enjoys gardening at home with her husband, Jim, who also is a professional horticulturalist. The two were married on the West Terrace at Stan Hywet in 2009.

Each tea is $35 per person or $28 for Stan Hywet members. Reservations are required; tickets may be purchased by visiting www.stanhywet.org or by calling 330-315-3287.
