Kielian DeWitt shows proof that gardeners are indeed lovely people!
"On August 8 of 2015, Ravalli County in western Montana celebrated its first annual "Bitterroot Secret Garden Tour". I was honored to have my garden chosen as one of five gardens highlighted on the tour. Tickets were sold out within hours (I believe that is because everyone is truly a gardener at heart) with all ticket sales benefitting the local animal shelter. It's success was such that another tour boasting five new gardens is scheduled for this summer to support another charity: SAFE (Supporters of Abuse Free Environments). Visit Bitterroot Secret Garden Tour for more information.
Montana gardeners brave tough conditions in an effort to encourage their gardens to grow. We're a riverine, alpine valley whose gardens can enjoy swirling microclimates a zone warmer than our designated zone 4. (Although, we were recently redesignated as a zone 5, I still plan and design for zone 4)."
