Sunday's garden tour canceled; July event set

The Open Garden Tour originally planned for Sunday, June 22, has been called off.

Karen Torvik, one of the organizers of the ongoing series of visits to Clintonville properties, cited lack of participation in announcing the cancellation.

However, in an email, Torvik said she and the other organizers, Pat Rugola and Mike Shifrin, will hold one more garden tour this summer and are actively recruiting enthusiasts to participate in tours next year.

The next event will take place Sunday, July 20, "and promises to have a good selection of gardens, some of them new to the tour," Torvik wrote.

More details will be announced as the date for the event approaches.

"We are hoping for people to consider opening their gardens for the 2015 Clintonville Garden Tour," Torvik added.
