    Garden#1  The Bowker Horticultural Society, East Sandwich
    Mary and Roger Bowker, both Master Gardeners, purchased their historic former dairy farm in 2001 and have spent the last 19 years rescuing 15 acres from invasive plants.  On four acres they have created a serene landscape of garden rooms around a gazebo and pergola, dotted with statuary and many hydrangeas, a formal herb garden and an orchard. They also enjoy their extensive vegetable patch where he, an avowed carnivore and she, an enthusiastic grower of all things green and edible, happily work side by side.

    Garden#2 Meandering Gardens, Sandwich
    Welcome to this stunning two-acre property in South Sandwich where an amazing collection of small gardens have been seamlessly blended into the natural landscape. There are several attractive perennial beds along with a small vegetable garden, prolific raspberry and blueberry plantings, and all 6 main Hydrangea species popular on the Cape.  Enjoy a relaxing stroll through some wooded grounds and/or a more challenging walk down the hill to Little Hog Pond. Topic of Talk: Raspberry & Blueberry cultivation. Garden Open for Tours: Jully 12th & July 16th

    Garden#3 A Welcome Home, Marstons Mills
    Step over the Town line from Sandwich to delight and relax at this colorful gem of a property on 2.5 acres located in rural Marstons Mills. Owners Bill and Beth Hearn have worked since 2017 to provide a rich and enticing habitat for butterflies, bees, birds and other fauna. Let the abundance of native and old favorite perennial and pollinator plants and bushes, which live in harmony with berries, fruit trees and vegetables, enchant and sooth you as you stroll the property. For the more adventurous, paths through the woods are there for a short walk or a bit longer walk downhill to the bogs on Bog Road. A wonderful yard to explore and experience.

    Topic of Talk: How to create a more environmentally friendly yard with less lawn and more native and pollinator perennial plants. Garden Open for Tours: Jully 12th & July 16th
