Gardens in bloom


The Arvada Historical Society is hosting its third annual Garden Tour/Fundraiser. This year’s tour will feature six residential gardens and the Rose Roots Community Garden, all of which have their own unique offerings from xeriscaping to water features and fairy gardens to rose gardens.

The tour will be 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 22, and begins at the Arvada Flour Mill, 5590 Olde Wadsworth Blvd. Residents can visit as many gardens as they wish in whatever order they like.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Flour Mill. This year’s proceeds will go toward planting a garden around the base of a recently-completed tree sculpture of Clemency McIlvoy by David Mitchell at the McIlvoy House, 7307 Grandview Ave.

For more information, call Mary Jo Giddings at 303-421-2032.
