EVENTS: Gardens of Lincoln County tour returns on June 22, 2024

With the great success of last year’s garden tour, Lincoln County Historical Association (LCHA) was inspired to seek additional private gardens to showcase. Happily, seven more homeowners have agreed to open their gardens to visitors for the 2024 Gardens of Lincoln County tour.

The gardens, which are in and around the towns of Wiscasset and Nobleboro, feature woodland environments as well as sunny country gardens. Two of them have been featured in Down East magazine, and all are bound to provide elements to spark the imagination of local gardeners. One of the gardens, for example, includes a delightful potting shed made from vintage windows. A beautiful old work table stands on a brick floor, and a wrought iron chandelier provides a touch of whimsy.

Ticket holders will drive themselves to the homes between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., on Saturday, June 22. In addition to intriguing landscapes, they may observe plein air painters at their easels. There will be flower arranging demonstrations and lessons in making biochar, a horticultural supplement that holds water and nutrients for the plants.

Tickets can be purchased online for $35 at
