15th Annual Garden Tour

June 19 Tuesday

The Clift Rodgers Library, with sponsorship from Nessralla’s Farm of Marshfield, will hold its 15th Annual Marshfield Garden Tour on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, from 10 am - 3 pm. This year’s event features six different gardens located throughout Marshfield, all unique in their beauty and composition.

Visitors are invited to browse a mix of perennial, annual and vegetable gardens at their own pace while enjoying light refreshments. Some locations will feature local artists at work. Come away with inspiration and gardening ideas for your own backyard, and enter for a chance to win prizes in the Garden Tour Drawing. The Garden Tour is a popular summer event and a major fundraiser for Clift Rodgers Library and Consignment Shop.

Garden Tour hours are 10 A.M. to 3 P.M., rain or shine. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 on the day of the tour. Tickets available after May 25 at:
Clift Rodgers Library,
Nessralla’s Farm,
Marshfield Hills General Store, and at
Roche Brothers Supermarket in Marshfield.
