GARDENS OF WEST BEND TOUR- New Marketplace Introduced

Meet us at the new “Marketplace” on the corner of Main and Vine in West Bend to get your tour started this year.  Buy your ticket, grab a brat or snack, check out the plants and garden art for sale and enter the drawing for a spectacular plant before you even begin your exciting day on the tour.  Then on tour you might learn how to produce enough fruit to supply your smoothies for nearly a year or learn how to develop a habitat for wildlife, but watch out for Mammoth, the host warns.  You will see many ideas and styles of gardens, water features and use of hardscape to inspire and enjoy.  Make a day of it and stop for lunch at our two excellent tour restaurants downtown, The Idle Hour or Two or Riverside Brewery, and receive 10% off of your lunch with your ticket.  

Tickets are $9 or $8 in advance and are available in West Bend at Steins Garden Center, Piggly Wiggly and Park & Rec Department in City Hall.  You can also get tickets online at rootsbranches.org or purchase them on the day of the tour at the Marketplace on the corner of Main and Vine in West Bend. Call 262-335-5083 for more information.
