Celebrating Conservation is the theme of the 2015 Historic Garden Week Tour in Staunton. The tour is hosted by The Augusta Garden Club.

Plan to celebrate spring and one of Virginia's most celebrated preservation success stories by touring well-conserved working farms anchored by landmark residences located at the city’s edge.

Whether it’s beekeeping, poultry or cattle farming, community-supported agriculture, or preservation and conservation easements, these properties showcase the many options for farming and conserving the land and the deep connection of each to the area’s historic and cultural roots.

Speakers from the Valley Conservation Council, Augusta County Historical Society, Virginia Department of Historic Resources, and Frazier Associates will discuss land conservation and the area's agricultural heritage.

Enjoy a performance of favorites for piano and violin featuring young performers from the Heifetz International Music Institute.

Join us for a locally sourced  box luncheon  by Chef Mike Lund. Payment required April 14 at www.mikelundfood.com/StauntonHGW.

Check the tour Facebook page Historic Garden Week in Staunton & Augusta County and follow on Twitter @agcgardweek for updates. Plan to come early and attend a Friday evening garden party at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library, a restoration garden of The Garden Club of Virginia.
