The 26th Annual
For 2015, South Church’s Pocket Garden Tour, a community celebration of Portsmouth’s ever-evolving home gardens, begins in South Church’s own lovely garden sanctuary and returns to Portsmouth’s historic South End neighborhood, for a behind-the-scenes exploration of twelve special private gardens. Ambling through this charming and intimate neighborhood, you’re sure to find abundant inspiration and joy.
The Pocket Garden Tour began in 1990 as a way for South Church to raise modest funds to maintain the church grounds. Twenty-six years later it has grown into an important annual, regional event, treasured by the Seacoast community and garden enthusiasts throughout New England and beyond. And, not incidentally, the tour has raised over $275,000 to benefit South Church and its broad work in the larger community.
