This is not your grandmother’s Garden Tour! The famed Historic Zoar Village Garden will be the site of tours and presentations by Home and Garden experts. With a broader home and garden focus, this year’s event will include the Bimeler House beautifully furnished by Andreas Furniture of Sugarcreek and expertly decorated by Nathan Paternoster of Pam’s Posies.
Private gardens are also open to the public during this special event, and a silent auction of home & garden and lifestyle items will be held. 10 am to 5 pm $10/person tours only; add-on options available for an additional cost include workshops (see below) a catered luncheon at the Zoar Schoolhouse (menu below), and an Afternoon Tea Service at the newly opened Tin Shop Coffee House across from the Zoar Garden.
