The Danville Alamo Walnut Creek (DAW) Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) announced today that registration is open for the Joy of Nature Garden Walk 2020.
The tour will be held Friday and Saturday, July 17-18, 2020 from 10 am to 4 pm.
Five homeowners in Danville and Alamo are opening their spectacular private grounds to garden enthusiasts from all over the Bay Area in order to raise money to support women’s education.
The DAW AAUW’s Garden Walk 2020 marks the twenty-year anniversary of the organization’s annual garden event. This year, participants are invited to enjoy a self-guided tour of each of the five gardens. Each garden is unique in its appeal and approach to creating the perfect home garden space. All visitors and docents will be required to wear masks and to observe social distancing during this outdoor event. Registrants will also receive a link to an on-line Garden Walk Highlights video to enable remote participation.
The AAUW Garden Walk 2020 is a tax-deductible fundraiser to support scholarships through the AAUW CA Special Projects Fund, a 501(c)(3) fund, Tax ID 68-043071. The DAW AAUW has awarded over $93,000 in scholarships over the last eight years to help local college women complete their degree programs.
Registration is open at https://daw-ca.aauw.net/garden/ .
The suggested donation is $35.00 per person. Children must be over 12. No pets, please.
“The outdoor Garden Walk 2020 is a great way to celebrate the beauty of nature after self-isolating,” said Kathy Harkins, AAUW Garden Walk 2020 Chairwoman. “We look forward to welcoming all garden lovers to enjoy these beautiful and unique home gardens while supporting scholarships for women.”
