Please join us for a self-guided Front Yard Garden Tour from 2-4pm on Saturday, September 19, 2020. (Rain date 2-4pm, Sunday, September 20, 2020.) Visit one or both of the tours in adjacent Kitchener neighbourhoods, Central Frederick and Olde Berlin Town.
The Olde Berlin Town tour features 12 gardens and the gardeners behind them. Garden Hosts will share their vision and answer questions. When asked for a brief description, Hosts offered “an urban woods”, “an English Shade Garden” and “supported nature”, among their varied answers.
The Olde Berlin Town Neighbourhood Association will host an information table – a great opportunity to connect, for new and old neighbours alike.
Last, but certainly not least, stop by the Bike Kitchener table to learn about the latest cycling projects and opportunities.
When you visit a garden or information table, please find a marked spot on the sidewalk and join in a chat with the Host and other visitors. We’ll learn from each other, get inspired and simply connect. As our goal is to encourage neighbourly connections, regardless of how you travel to the Garden Tour, please avoid the use of cars when travelling between locations.

We hope to see you on September 19th!
