2019 FHFG Garden Tour

"Sunday in the Garden" June 2, 2019 noon - 4PM

Six beautiful gardens will be on tour stretching from historic Old Town Forest Grove to the modern Forest Gale Heights neighborhood.  Learn artistic ways to garden in small spaces, how to tackle a giant slope, and how to create a yard with something for the whole family.  Experience the joys of the old days with “games of years gone by.”  Each of the gardens will take you back to easy-going summer days by featuring displays of vintage boardgames like Monopoly, Clue, and Parcheesi and lawn games like croquet and badminton, with a brief history and the rules of each.
