Ann Arbor Farm & Garden Walk

. June 1, 2015.

Serious gardeners love to show off the fruits of their soil-y labor, and the Farm and Garden Walk provides the perfect opportunity for the area’s top seedspeople. This year, the Walk’s 25th anniversary, fourteen of the area’s “best” private gardens will be on display—blooming flowers, shade gardens, hillside beds, waterfalls, and ponds. A number of gardener hosts plan to present merchandise tables for plant starts and handcrafted garden art. Proceeds benefit five local organizations: Edible Avalon, Friends of Greenview/Pioneer, Leslie Science and Nature Center, Matthaei Botanical Garden, Nichols Arboretum, and the Washtenaw County Youth Detention Center garden program.

10-4pm. Saturday, June 13 and Sunday, June 14. $30/two day, $20/single day. 734-646-8936. annarbrofarmandgarden.org
