Garden tour of Alys Beach

February 29, 2016

March 24, 2016 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

The Tri County Horticulture Study Group will meet at Alys Beach for a garden tour, led by Kendall Horne, Landscape Coordinator for Alys Beach. The tour will be held on Thursday, March 24 at 10 a.m.

Alys Beach is a Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) whose architectural vision has its roots in the style of Bermuda architecture and in the courtyards of Antigua, Guatemala, the colonial capital of Central America. The town, bookended by its precious beach and dunes to the south and 22 acres of preserved wetlands to the north, is committed to sustainability  and celebrates its surroundings with winding trails, outdoor sculptures, elegant landscapes and many community green spaces.

Meeting Location: Meet and park at the amphitheater.

At Fontville Press, Ms. Horne will give an overview of the landscape design prior to leading a walking tour of this lovely garden community. Participants are invited to enjoy the self-guided nature trail following the tour. Lunch afterwards at “Shades” on the corner of 30A and 98 east of Alys Beach.
