Local private gardens and farms open their gates on July 18th.
The 10th Annual Cohase Garden Tour is scheduled for Sunday, July 18th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The tour kicks off at the Denny Park bandstand, 9 N. Main Street, Bradford, Vt., across from the Wells River Savings Bank. This event is held each year by the Cohase Chamber of Commerce, with the help of local business sponsors: North Haverhill Agway, JM Landscaping, and North Country Organics.
Visitors on this year’s tour are invited to stroll through beautiful and unique private gardens with a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and flowers, including an English-style garden and an art studio with work on display. The tour continues at Root 5 Farm, a certified organic vegetable farm on the Connecticut River with tours of their fields and hoop houses. Finally, visitors are invited to Montview Vineyard for wine-tasting and an optional catered lunch. The tour takes visitors along scenic back roads between Bradford and Corinth, Vt. Drive time is less than one hour, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the gardens.
