I cannot be more proud of our local Master Gardeners. This is a group of people who really want the community to learn about gardening, and to have fun doing it. One of their chief projects, the 2021 Garden Tour, will be held in Saturday, June 26, in the Bristol area, from 10 am to 4 pm. It is a true labor of love and giving back to the community.

It has not been an easy year. Their 2020 Tour was canceled due to COVID, and much planning went up in smoke. Yet they persevered, like many of you, taking their meetings online, adjusting for the new conditions, and now, they have a wonderful and safe outdoor event planned for our area.
