BATH TWP.: The charm of traditional gardens thriving among historic buildings will be the centerpiece to Hale Farm & Village’s first Home and Garden Tour, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 29-30 at 2686 Oak Hill Road.
Not only will the architectural history and stories behind the historic outdoor museum be showcased, but by visiting a variety of gardens on site, visitors can glimpse historic horticulture and hear tales of products from the garden.
“This new Home and Garden Tour event is a natural for Hale Farm, known for its historic farming, gardening and historic preservation,” said Kelly Falcone, senior vice president of interpretation and chief operating officer, Western Reserve Historical Society. “People love gardens and love the historic places at Hale Farm & Village – so we see it as an ideal opportunity to thread the two together for a unique experience on a garden tour.”
Among the gardens to be seen will be the Bath Gamma Garden Club’s Herb Garden and Great Lakes Brewing Company’s “Pint Size Farm.” Established five years ago, Pint Size Farm is a half-acre plot dedicated to growing organic produce used and preserved by the Brewpub's kitchen crew.
Visitors can also meet with members of local organizations working collaboratively with Hale Farm & Village, including Bath Gamma Garden Club, Medina Spinning and Weaving Guild, the Village Quilters, Great Lakes Brewing Co., and more.
Exhibitor spaces for local garden clubs, nurseries, preservation clubs, guilds, etc., are still available for the Home & Garden Tour by calling 330-666-3711, ext. 1717. Deadline for exhibitor space consideration is June 21.
