Quiet Corner Gardens, a self-guided tour of eight gardens in Pomfret, Putnam and Woodstock on July 13, from 9am to 4pm, is the Quiet Corner Garden Club’s latest offering to the community. Come, be inspired.

Start at the Woodstock Town Green (Route 169, across from Roseland Cottage) where you can purchase tickets or pick up prepaid tickets at the will-call table. You will then receive a map with garden descriptions and locations. Tickets are $25 the day of the sale or $20 when purchased in advance at the Quiet Corner Garden Club’s website, quietcornergardenclub.com.

The tour includes homes where owners have created gardens reflecting their unique vision; a family’s self-sustaining property with orchards, vegetables, flowers and more; an organic farm; a historic inn, where in addition to the gardens, a luncheon buffet is available from 12pm to 2pm (reservations required, $35); and municipal gardens maintained by the Club.

A garden-inspired Arts & Crafts fair, located adjacent to the registration tables, will offer gift items for sale including baskets, ceramics for home and garden, hand made soaps and lotions, bird houses, jewelry and more.

Proceeds from the Garden Tour are used to fund scholarships for area students studying horticulture-related fields, for civic projects such as children’s gardens in schools and libraries, plantings at senior housing facilities, and memorial sites throughout the region.

The Quiet Corner Garden Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization affiliated with The Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut and is a member of the National Garden Clubs.
