We pre-recorded today’s conversation for Tourism Tuesday – Shenandoah County edition – with Kary Haun from Shenandoah County Tourism and her guest Elaine Specht, President of Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners Association.

We recorded today’s show from Elaine’s front porch to talk about the Gardening in the Valley Tour that will happen on Saturday, June 26, 2021 from 9am – 5pm across Shenandoah County.

The tour will feature five uniquely different and spectacular gardens in Shenandoah County. Each one will provide ideas that gardening enthusiasts of all levels can replicate in their own gardens.

Master Gardeners will be on-site at each garden to point out educational features. Information tables staffed by Master Gardeners will be at several locations to answer your gardening questions.

  • Country Farm (5 miles west of Edinburg)
