In Celebration Of Bruce and Evelyn King. This year’s tour is celebrating Bruce and Evelyn King. The King’s had taken a section of their yard and with sweat and hard work created a garden oasis. With Evelyn’s skills’ in gardening, she planted trees and put in amazing flowerbeds. Evelyn’s efforts did not go unnoticed. As soon neighbors were enjoying the beauty of her work and asking for help with their garden homes.
Evelyn’s legacy lives on in the happiness and love for gardening. You can’t walk through the streets of Green River without seeing the beauty of a garden that has been touched by Evelyn King.
In memory of the King’s, this year’s tour is hosting a raffle. The raffle is to raise funds to purchase a tree and memory plaque to be placed on the memory walk by the river. We are currently receiving items for the raffle and raffle items will be displayed during tour at garden homes. Garden home owners will be selling raffle tickets before and during the pond tour. Winners of raffle items will be notified by phone on August, 11th.

The town of Green River is located in the south west corner of the state. Nestled between amazing rock formations with the Green River running through the heart of town. " It's an oasis in the" High Desert Country." A town with many drawing points for visitors to discover. One special community event is the annual pond and garden tour. This unique event typically happens in last summer. This years tour is scheduled for Saturday, August 10th. From 9am to 3pm. Because Green River is located in the high desert planes it has a very short growing season making local gardening very challenging. That's where the Green River Pond tour becomes an avenue for residents and visitors to see what can be grown and created in our area. We typically have 12 exquisite garden homes giving visitors the opportunity to view koi ponds, water features, landscaping designs and productive vegetable designs.
The pond tour is free to the public. Tour guides will be available one week prior to the tour at Green River Chambers, Riverside Nursery, Taco Time, Castle Rock Realty and our local news paper will have an article with addresses and information on the tour.
We look forward to seeing you August, 8th and don't forget your camera!
