Special Thanks

[Details on the 2017 GW & UB are Under Development]


Special Thanks to our donors
who have made our event possible


Our Gardeners

First we must thank our gardeners who have diligently worked preparing their gardens so they would be at their best for your viewing.  We hope you enjoyed viewing the gardens and bringing home gardening solutions you will be able to incorporate into your garden.  Not a gardener, that's okay since the beauty of the gardens was something you will remember; enjoy those memories.


Our Garden Club Volunteers

An event as large as the Garden Walk/Unique Boutique requires many long hours of work by our club members who volunteer their time from January until the event to plan, organize and run this event.  Without our member volunteers, and many of their family members, this event would not be possible.
