The Annual Water Garden Weekend Tour and Water Garden Evening Tour in Chester County, PA
Visiting Beautiful Ponds, Making Friends, and Raising Money for the Chester County Food Bank
The 2023 tour is on Saturday, July 29th & Sunday, July 30th.
Every year, we look forward to the Brandywine Valley Water Garden Tour and Evening Garden Tour. These two special events are an opportunity for homeowners to showcase the ponds and water gardens that enhance their homes and their lifestyles in the Chester County, Pennsylvania, area, and for participants to see how diverse, eco-friendly, and low-maintenance these backyard ponds can be.
More than that, these tours help us raise money for the Chester County Food Bank. Proceeds from the 2022 tours raised about $25,000, bringing our all-time total to more than $200,000 for this incredible cause. We love getting together with our friends and neighbors to celebrate the beauty of the outdoors while giving back to the community we love.
In 2022, the two-day tour took place on July 30 and 31. Ticket holders received a map of the properties with information about each pond and its features, along with an invitation to the barbecue on Saturday night! Participants were delighted by the calm, restful backyard environments, and they were inspired with a variety of ideas for their own outdoor spaces. As always, it was an immersive experience for your eyes and ears, an opportunity to connect with fellow community members, and a simple, enjoyable way to support the Chester County Food Bank.
The evening tour was on Saturday, September 24. This intimate experience included transportation from home to home, where participants enjoyed food and drinks at each location. The ponds were beautifully illuminated to highlight the unique features, from fish to flowers, waterfalls, and more. Tour participants got a better understanding of just how versatile water features can be, and how much they can enhance the outdoor entertainment experience no matter the time of day.
Make plans to attend next year's tours! We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you on this journey of outdoor inspiration, friendship, and community.
