2018 Garden Tours: Photo Album

In July, OHS members had the opportunity to visit the gardens of three members in the Alta Vista area, and also to visit two special allotments at the Kilborn Allotment Gardens.   Thanks to Jan Carkner, Suzanne Carr and Dorothy Levine for opening up your gardens for our viewing pleasure.  At the Kilborn allotments, we were able to visit the volunteer run Hope Garden, a 7000 sq ft organic garden which supplies the Shepherds of Good Hope’s soup kitchen and supportive housing meal programs. This garden has been up and running since the early 2000’s and after so many years of care yields between 5000 and 7000 lbs of veggies each year.  We also were able to see Anne Johnston’s hybridizing garden, where at any given time there are about 700 unique flowering daylilies plus another 400 or so that are only in their first year.   Check out the photos!
