Secret Gardens Of St Ives
Secret Gardens Of St Ives - Trewyn House
This weekend - Saturday (12th June) and Sunday (13th June) several private gardens in St Ives will be open to the public from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm.
This is a fundraiser for St Ives Parish Church - currently celebrating its 600th anniversary. Brochures (which are also entry tickets) will be available from the church each day costing £3.50. These give an ‘at a glance guide' to the locations around town.
The vicarage garden off St Andrews Street is included - a wild oasis of rare perennials where visitors can enjoy a cream tea on the lawn.
Also an organic garden of leafy , free-flowing shrubs, flowers and trees. Trewyn House is included plus several more.
Tate St Ives is participating the fundraising by allowing visitors to enjoy Barbara Hepworth’s Sculpture Garden at half the normal admission fee - £2.75 (concessions £1.75).
My own garden in Bedford Road is also included for the first time. Mostly dedicated to growing fruit and vegetables, but also with flower and wild garden areas. So please do come along - and you can also meet the chickens !
