FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Every other year, the Forsyth County Master Gardeners open their private grounds to the public, showcasing a variety of gardens.

Seven gardens will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 7.

Expert master gardeners will be available at each garden location to answer gardening questions as well.

Tickets are $15 if purchased before June 5. Day of tour tickets are $20 (cash or check only) and will be available for sale at Cumming Elementary School.

Funds from the garden tour support the master gardeners’ demonstration gardens at each of the county public libraries and the Louise Mashburn Native Plant Garden at Sawnee Mountain Preserve.

In addition, the gardeners offer research-based advice on planting, growing and caring for gardens and lawns and provide educational training programs to children in schools and adults in Forsyth County throughout the year.
