2013 Druid Hills Home and Garden Tour
The Druid Hills Civic Association invites you to attend The Druid Hills Home and Garden Tour, Friday to Sunday, April 19-21. A seasonal favorite in the area, we will celebrate the evolution of the architecture and design of the historic Druid Hills neighborhood. Seven beautiful destinations will be showcased, and for the first time, the tour will feature a classic car show, sponsored by Lambda Car Club of Atlanta. Also included with the tour this year, is an new Speaker Series, featuring five different presentations, scheduled over the course of the weekend in the Auditorium at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. Speakers include gardening expert Walter Reeves (Vegetable Gardens for Small Spaces), internationally revered garden designer Ryan Gainey (The Wonders of Landscape Architecture), author and historian Richard Sams (The History of the Druid Hills Neighborhood), naturalist and author Jim Wilson (The Birds of Georgia) and a panel discussion on home restoration with many notable local experts.
“We are delighted to share some of the compelling ways that residents have transformed their homes to accommodate modern use,” says Barbara Vogel, chair of the Druid Hills Homes & Gardens Committee. “By highlighting the adaptive spaces, we hope to inspire visitors to consider new inspirational designs that complement the neighborhood’s historic legacy.”
The event, sponsored by the Druid Hills Civic Association, takes place April 19-20, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and April 21, 1-5 p.m. Tickets may be purchased in advance (insert clickhere button with link to purchase page). Proceeds from the tour and associated events benefit the Druid Hills neighborhood, which the noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted designed during the late 19th century.
We also need volunteers to serve as docents for the tour. Volunteers receive a free tour ticket, a $30 value, and are invited to the volunteer “Thank You” party after the tour. Visit http://druidhills.org/2013-tour-volunteers-docents/ to signup.
