2020 Garden Tour Highlights: Welcome

For twenty-four years, the Friends of the Library have sponsored our annual garden tour as one of four fundraisers throughout the year.  In past years, visitors would enjoy a self-guided tour of 5 or 6 featured gardens in Beaver and surrounding areas.  This year's virtual form allows us to share these impressive gardens for more than just a limited time.  We hope you enjoy viewing just some of the highlights of this year's tour!

Our goal was to raise $1,000 which would go directly towards capital improvements including library landscaping, restroom upgrades, and painting.  As of June 27, the original date of the tour, we had raised just short of $800 through ticket sales and additional contributions.  Please consider a donation to help us meet our goal.

The O'Leary Garden

Raelynn O'Leary's garden on Second Street in Beaver, PA can be summed up in one word: scrumptious. She has created a beautiful ecosystem in her garden, full of fresh fruits and vegetables that puts the produce section of a grocery store to shame.

The Grivna Garden

Peaceful, gorgeous, spectacular; there are too many adjectives to describe Grivna's garden off of Tusca Rd. in Brighton Twp., and none fully capture the beauty of it.  The dedication to their garden is matched by their wonderful hospitality.
