Announcement from the Flatbush Family Network.
Garden-loving neighbors near and far are invited to join this year's Ditmas Park Garden View on Sunday, July 15. The strolling tour is from 4-6 pm, rain or shine, and will feature approximately a dozen gardens in private homes along East 16th to East 18th Streets, between Newkirk to Dorchester. The final garden stop will also include drinks and refreshments. A raffle drawing for three hand-held, battery operated sprayers (hot weather essentials) completes the event.
Suggested donation for the tour is $5.00 per person, and goes to support Keep Ditmas Park Green. Regretfully-but understandably-participants must be at least twelve years old.
