2019 FHFG Garden TourSunday in the Garden ... featuring games of days gone by..
Enjoy a “Sunday in the Garden” when Friends of Historic Forest Grove hosts its 24th Spring Garden Tour from noon to 4pm on Sunday, June 2, 2019.
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 board games like Monopoly, Clue, and Parcheesi and lawn games like croquet and badminton, with a brief history and the rules of each.
