SECRET GARDENS OF KENNEBUNKPORT – A FUNDRAISER FOR GRAVES LIBRARY

According to Cicero, “if you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

We are very pleased to announce that Graves Library is launching its First Annual Secret Gardens of Kennebunkport tour on Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm (rain or shine).  Eight homeowners have agreed to open their private gardens for this one day only to help raise money for the Library.  Tickets are $40 each and they can be purchased in advance on the library website at graveslibrary.org or at the Library at 18 Maine Street. On the day of the event, tickets will only be sold at Kennebunkport Consolidated School at 25 School Street.

A program map will be provided that day to all ticket holders to reveal the secret locations of the eight participating properties. Visitors will be treated to a wide variety of garden styles and plant types amid lovely natural settings hidden from view behind stone walls, seaside cottages, and privacy hedges. Colorful perennials and annuals, a scenic pond, woodland sculptures, ocean views, a Zen-inspired rock garden, trellised blooms, and many more delights are waiting to be discovered during this special garden tour opportunity.

Please call us with any questions. (207) 967-2778.
