Thanks for your support.  The 20th Anniversary Garden Tour was our most successful to date.  The proceeds enable us to offer support to some of the most vulnerable people in our city.  Thanks.

View this slideshow and visit the beauty of our 15 River Heights gardens.

See you next year, June 20, 2020 in Scotia Heights.

We received this comment from a Garden Tour visitor we thought was worth sharing:

I always send a thank you to the office at St. Matthews Maryland after each tour to let them know how much we appreciate the tours & the work the volunteers do.
We really enjoy the tours & the hosts are always so friendly & willing to share lots of gardening info with us.
The slide show is really well done & we recognized so many of the gardens we were lucky enough to go through.
Looking forward to next year’s tour in the Kildonan Park area.
