West End Garden Tour, Spring 2008

At our West End Arts meeting on November 7th, Kent Petterson talked about the plans for a West End Garden Tour tentatively scheduled for June 21, 2008, a Saturday from 10-4PM. Some suggestions came up about how we might participate:
  • Lending (or commissioning) sculptures to featured gardens.
  • Arranging musical performances in featured gardens.
  • Beautifying random green spaces along West Seventh.
Joe L. has passed along minutes from a Garden Tour planning session, which I'm excerpting here. If you're interested in finding out more, you can contact Kent Petterson at terrace-AT-winternet-DOT-com. Kent owns Terrace Horticulture Books at 503 St. Clair Ave., right here in St. Paul (phone 651-222-5536).

An ad hoc committee of neighbors met at the Fort Road Federation offices on October 24th at 6:30 PM regarding a proposed summer 2008 neighborhood garden tour. Our informal survey that night indicated this tour would be the only community sponsored summer event next year. Our thanks to Betty Moran and the Federation for making their conference room available.

Kent Petterson acted as moderator for this first meeting of the group and will be a contact point in the future. Information will be transmitted via email as much as possible in the future. Please let Kent know at terrace-AT-winternet-DOT-com if you wish to be added to this email list.
