No garden tour this year.
"The Pacifica Garden Club has decided not to offer a Garden Tour in June.

We regret having to do this but in fairness to those generous enough to offer their gardens we feel it is a wise choice. Obviously, the drought has caused all of us to cut back on watering. The demand for water to maintain a beautiful garden is an essential element not available to anyone with the current dry spell.

Hopefully, we will be back on track with another inspiring tour next year.  Please stay tuned and hope for more rain in future months."
