2019 FHFG Garden Tour"Sunday in the Garden" June 2, 2019 noon - 4PM
We had a great 2019 FHFG Garden Tour. The weather was beautiful and the gardens even more so. A special thank you to all of the homeowners who put many hours into getting their gardens and homes in pristine condition. We’ll soon post photos of all of the gardens. Stay tuned!
Six beautiful gardens were 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.
