How to Get to the Gardens

To respect the privacy of our generous garden contributors we do not publish the garden addresses on our website.  For your convenience we create a Garden Tour Map that shows the specific garden locations. You can pick up a Garden Tour Map at our information booth on Sunday, May 15, 2016 at Lion Rock Farm location, Route 41 and Hosier Road, Sharon, CT  06069.  The booth will open at 9 a.m. on Sunday.  *Please Note:  Tickets will NOT be sold at this location.  Tickets will be sold at the gardens on the day of the tour.

A Garden Tour Map will be included with all advance ticket orders.  If you would like to receive a Garden Tour Map earlier you can do so by contacting the Women's Support Services office prior to Friday, May 6, 2016.  A copy can be mailed, faxed or emailed to you.  The office phone is (860) 364-1080.
