The annual Trinity Garden Tour, a fund-raising tour of area gardens

is scheduled for 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, July 15 and Sunday, July 16.

For more than a decade, talented and generous community members have

made the Trinity gardens truly outstanding, and with the proceeds

have made it possible to purchase equipment and to carry out

renovations that were not covered in the operating budget.

Additionally, the tour has been a means of getting Trinity's name out

into the broader community.

Trinity Care center is a senior care and adult rehabilitation

facility located in Farmington.

Tickets for the tour are $15 each and can be purchased at any of the

nine garden sites on the days of the tour. All of the gardens are in

Dakota County. A brochure can be sent to your home in advance of the

event by calling Joy or Tracy in the Trinity Care Center Activities
