Samaritan House Secret Garden Tour set for June 22
The Samaritan House Homeless Family Shelter invites locals and visitors alike to enjoy the eleventh annual Samaritan House Secret Garden Tour on Sunday, June 22, from noon to 5pm. Mark your calendar now for this great event.
This year the featured gardens are in north Lincoln County and in Neskowin, in Tillamook County. The gardens offer a wide variety of plant life and garden designs, and the homeowners have worked hard to make their gardens personal and unique. There are eleven gardens on the tour, with nearby parking or shuttles to make it easy on the visitors. Once again, the Secret Garden Tour features live music and a raffle, along with cheese, wine and desserts.
Gardens range from large areas with trees, benches, and many plants, flowers, and vegetables, to small intimate garden spaces. Eight of the gardens are in Neskowin Village, so visitors will park in the Neskowin Beach State Wayside and walk over the bridge to the gardens, which are near each other and well-signed.
Tickets are $20 and may be purchased after May 1 at several locations throughout the area, including JC Market in Newport, Bear Valley Nursery in Lincoln City, the Neskowin Trading Company, and the Samaritan House office at 715 SW Bay St. in Newport.
This is a wonderful and fun opportunity to support the only homeless family shelter between Tillamook and Coos Bay. The weekend will also include a Gala Dinner on June 21. Details on both events will be available at www.samfamshelter.org or by calling 541-574-8898.
