Soroptimist Garden Tour – May 19

Six beautiful and unique gardens in the Jacksonville and Central Point area will be available for individual or group viewing on Saturday, May 19, 2018 during the Soroptimist’s 16th Annual Garden Tour.  One garden will host Chamber music groups from South Medford and Grants Pass High Schools.

This popular local event is a favorite with gardeners and garden lovers in the entire Rogue Valley.  Each year a variety of beautiful gardens are chosen to highlight the creative ways that outdoor spaces can be utilized. You may see everything from small pocket gardens to large public sculpted ones with gorgeous flowers, ponds, organic vegetables, and garden art. There will be a wild profusion of color and textures to inspire the most reluctant gardeners.

This is the main fundraiser of the year for this local chapter of the world’s largest international women’s service organization, with nearly 100,000 members in more than 100 countries.  Soroptimists fund many community service projects that make a difference for women and girls in our region.

For over 20 years this club has funded annual college scholarships for Crater High School students and Live Your Dream Awards for chosen local woman-head-of-household college students, healthcare funding assistance for local low-income women and a mentoring program for Central Point middle school girls.

Tickets are $20.00 and can be purchased starting on April 19 until May 18 at the following locations:

  • Blue Door Garden Store in Jacksonville
  • Southern Oregon Nursery, Medford
  • Judy’s Central Point Florist
  • Penny & Lulu Studio Florist, Medford
