Wander through exquisite gardens on this 28th annual Pocket Gardens of Portsmouth Tour. Beginning at South Church’s own lovely garden sanctuary, the tour heads towards Portsmouth’s vibrant West End for a behind-the-scenes exploration of 10 special private gardens in and around the Cabot Street neighborhood. You won’t want to miss it!
The Pocket Garden Tour began in 1990 as a way for South Church to raise modest funds to maintain the church grounds. Twenty-eight years later it has grown into an important annual, regional event, treasured by the Seacoast community and garden enthusiasts throughout New England and beyond. And, not incidentally, the tour has raised nearly $300,000 to benefit South Church and its broad work in the larger community.
Tour runs Friday, June 23, 5 p.m. – 8 p.m; and Saturday, June 24, 9 a.m. -3 p.m.
