FALLBROOK – After months of preparation, the Fallbrook Garden Club’s annual Garden Tour held April 13 came to a successful end “without a hitch,” organizers said. The club had close to one hundred volunteers who worked together to make the event memorable and share their passion for plants and for the community. Seven magnificent gardens were featured on the tour.
Visitors came from all over and raved over the variety of gardens they visited. Carrying cameras and taking notes, visitors descended on seven beautifully manicured gardens with amazing planters, a great collection of roses, exotic fruit trees, palms and the most spectacular succulent’s displays.
The Fallbrook Historical Society Museum parking lot was transformed to a wonderful marketplace with hundred of plants for sale, local venders selling their garden-related items, and a great display of vintage cars by the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club.
Organizers said local businesses donated over 60 raffle prizes, the Fallbrook Historical Society graciously allowed the use of their grounds, and the property owners, who generously opened their homes to enthusiastic onlookers, all helped Fallbrook Garden Club members create the most successful fundraiser yet for the organization.
Proceeds from the tour are used for community projects and college scholarships for deserving students. For more information, visit www.fallbrookgardenclub.org.
