Batavia Garden Walk set for June 20

By on June 11, 2009

KANE—“Primrose to Prairie” is the theme of this year’s garden walk presented by the Batavia Plain Dirt Gardeners on Saturday, June 20, from 10 am to 4 pm.

Seven gardens are open for discovery, from a stately property that was once part of the Underground Railroad to a former limestone quarry overlooking the Fox River.

This is the eighth garden walk for the Plain Dirt Gardeners. This event and the annual plant sale in May provide funds towards the club’s commitment to maintain the Batavia Wildflower Sanctuary and for providing several college scholarships.

Tickets for the Garden Walk are $12.50 in advance and are available at the Batavia Park District, 327 W. Wilson St. Several local businesses are also selling tickets.

The day of the walk, tickets may be purchased for $15 at the Government Center, 1000 N. Island Ave., Batavia.

Stop by the Government Center for a complimentary tea featuring beverages, finger sandwiches and homemade desserts. There will be a raffle, plus many yard and garden items offered for sale.
