Amid all the pink, yellow and green heralding spring’s arrival, Friends of Maclay Gardens is seeing a little silver as this year marks its 25th annual Tour of Gardens. The tour takes place on Saturday, May 18. This year’s tour promises to be a showcase of some of Tallahassee’s finest landscapes and features six residential gardens in addition to a unique new community garden space. Most of the gardens are situated in the immediate Tallahassee area and within a short drive from the Park entrance.
The day starts at 9 a.m. with a continental breakfast on the lawn at the garden entrance inside beautiful Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park. At 10 a.m. those in attendance will receive a booklet containing brief descriptions and directions to the gardens that are being featured on the 2019 Tour. Tour-goers may then proceed on their own self-driven tour of the gardens where docents from the Leon County Master Gardener program will be on hand to answer any questions.
Throughout the one-day camp, Jameis Winston and our coaches will offer tips and hands-on instruction, including lectures, fundamental football skills stations, contests, and non-contact games in a high-energy, fun, and positive environment. Campers will be placed in small groups by age to ensure that each child gets maximum instruction. The camp will be staffed by some of the area’s top high school and college coaches.
