A quintet of private grounds & the church garden
One of my ongoing issues with the Home & Garden network (beyond its propensity to provide ideas for remodeling N3 World Headquarters) is that they toss out a lot about homes and way too little about gardens. In fact they should change their name to The Contractors Network since it has evolved into a venue for carpentry types and their innovation oriented partners to cash in on their fetching personalities as they face the inevitable crises inherent in reno projects.
But enough grousing. Here’s some news on actual gardens.
Each year for nearly 2 decades the Fremont United Methodist Church has held their Annual Garden Tour. Last year like many events the popular event took a sabbatical, courtesy of COVID of course.
Thankfully the opportunity to experience some very appealing gardens is back on and raring to go.
Here's the skinny on the tour courtesy of co-organizer Jean Sherman:
Yes, Fremont United Methodist Church is holding their Garden Tour again this year. The garden tour will be held Saturday, July 10 from 9 am to 3 pm. You are invited to tour five gardens in the Fremont area plus the gardens at the Fremont United Methodist Church. Your ticket to tour the gardens will include a free cookie and beverage. Tickets are $7.00 and can be purchased at the church or day of event.
We are so happy to be able to tour the gardens of Amber Wakefield & Curtis Muma, Linda and Chip Wiersema, Kathy Fend, Susan Littich and Patti and Rod Croff. They are very pretty gardens located within an easy drive around Fremont.
The day of the Garden Tour, stop at the Fremont United Methodist church to tour their Memorial and Prayer Gardens. While there look over the garden art made by church members. Also, purchase baked goods and books. Yes, we will have a Christian fiction book sale. We are sorry to say that we will not have the Salad Luncheon. All proceeds benefit mission projects of the Fremont United Methodist Church. Contact church office 231-924-0030 or Jean Sherman at 231-519-2542 for further questions.
