At a meeting held at Susan Bank’s House, BHCF representatives from the House Tour and the Garden and Green Space Committees discussed adding gardens to the 2015 Chocolate House Tour. All in attendance were in favor of the idea.
The House and Garden TOur will be announcing the date soon for its next meeting which will include representatives from the Garden and Green Space committee.
Susan Banks, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Home and Garden Editor, and prestigious local gardener, when asked for advice, suggested we join the trend of adding a garden tour to our house tour. She is our honorary chair for this new venture and at least three gardens will be included in the tour, including Susan Bank’s award winning garden
Many neighbors have stopped me on the street over the years to suggest we have a gaeden tour. So we are! With the addition of the gardens and the notoriety of Susan Banks, we believe we will draw a larger audience with the addition of the gardens for this popular event and major fundraiser.
If interested in volunteering of participating in any fashion, please let us know.
