Sunday June 24, 2012
10 am – 4 pm, rain or shine!
Tickets $20

Each year the Secret Gardens Tour Committee sleuths out new gardens for the Tour. Each year home gardeners generously agree to include their gardens in what is our largest annual fundraiser. This year we have 9 Secret Gardens for garden lovers to explore – 5 in Dundas and 4 in Waterdown!

Ticket buyers receive a self-directed garden tour map on their ticket, descriptions of the gardens, a copy of this year’s Secret Gardens poster (by artist Gillian Song), a 10% discount coupon for Carnegie Gallery purchases (expiry date July 31st 2012), and a draw ballot for one of many generously donated prizes.

While on the Gardens Tour, be sure to visit the complimentary Secret Gardens Tour tearoom at the Carnegie Gallery. Relax at one of our tearoom tables, listen to live music provided by Ruthie Pytka-Jones and friends, have a glass of lemonade or iced tea, and munch on homemade cakes, breads, and cookies.

Tickets are available for purchase at the Carnegie Gallery, 10 King Street West, in Dundas.
For more information please call the Carnegie Gallery (905) 627-4265.
