Self-guided tour of six extraordinary Amherst-area private gardens new to the Garden Tour this year--each created by the current owner. Flat lands & hills, woodlands & open spaces are all represented in this rich array of what is possible with vision, luck with mother nature-and hard work!
These gardens are all the work of the current owners inspired by the natural scenic landscapes, heritage, and childhood memories.
At the Simeon Strong House, along with the 18th century garden, enjoy the work of ecological designers, TK Design Lab. Tour-goers will be able to explore ideas about home gardens as unique plant communities emphasizing how these communities will change as homeowners and designers respond to the effects of climate change. Tickets and tour maps available for purchase online at amhersthistory.org and in person at A.J. Hastings, Andrews Greenhouse, and Hadley Garden Center. Tickets are also available the day of the tour at the Simeon Strong.
