Local artists will be painting Sunday, July 10 in the six gardens featured on the Georges River Land Trust’s Gardens in the Watershed tour. Tour-goers will be able to purchase raffle tickets for any of the day’s paintings with the proceeds going to the land trust.

This year marks the 20th consecutive year the organization has mounted this popular tour, which is underwritten this year by the Bangor Savings Bank. This year’s gardens are located in Hope, Appleton and Union.

Tickets may be purchased at any one of several local bookstores or from the GRLT office, 8 North Main St., for $25 before the tour or at any of the gardens for $28 on tour day. A gourmet bag lunch is available for pre-order. For more information, call 594-5166 or send email to info@grlt.org.
