June 26, 2021, 9 a.m.- 5 p.m., Rain or Shine
The Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener Association is pleased to present the Gardening in the Valley Tour. This year, we will feature five uniquely different and spectacular gardens in Shenandoah County. Each one will provide ideas that gardening enthusiasts of all levels can replicate in their own gardens.
Master Gardeners will be on-site at each garden to point out educational features. Information tables staffed by Master Gardeners will be at several locations to answer your gardening questions.
- Edinburg Mill Biofiltration Garden (214 S. Main St., Edinburg)
- Country Farm (5 miles west of Edinburg)
- Monarchs on Meadow (1.5 miles west of I-81, Woodstock Exit)
- In-Town Yard (Downtown Woodstock)
- Veatch’s Gleann Arboretum (17 miles west of I-81, Strasburg Exit)
Tickets can be purchased online in advance for $10 per person and on the day of the tour for $12 per person. Online advance-sale tickets will begin in late April. Tickets on the day of the tour will be available for purchase ONLY at Edinburg Mill (214 S. Main St., Edinburg; 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and Pot Town Organics (181 W. King St., Strasburg; 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.). Tickets cannot be purchased at any of the other garden sites.
Watch this space to see video recordings of some of our tour sites posted after June 26.
Proceeds from the 2021 Gardening in the Valley Tour will benefit construction of a Peace Pavilion at Corhaven Graveyard.
COVID Precautions and Safety
We are committed to following safety precautions in place by the State of Virginia and Virginia Cooperative Extension at the time of the tour, including requiring masks, providing sanitizer, and maintaining social distance. All of the gardens selected are large enough for guests to spread out and enjoy the outdoors without close contact with people not in their group.
June can get hot and humid. Be sure to bring your own drinking water to stay hydrated as you visit.
Most of the garden tour sites are at private homes. The grounds and gardens will have areas of uneven ground or steep slopes. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear.
No pets are allowed. Service animals, as defined by the American with Disabilities Act, are permitted.
NSVMGA gratefully acknowledges our sponsors.
