Historic Garden Week in Virginia:
For one week this April, visitors will tour inspired private landscapes, public gardens and historic sites across Virginia, enjoying our beautiful state at the peak of spring. In addition, over 1,000 world-class floral arrangements created by Garden Club of Virginia members will enhance tour properties. This beloved statewide event will include 30 unique tours organized and hosted by 48 member clubs located from the foothills of the Shenandoah Valley all the way to the beaches of Tidewater.
Petersburg and Prince George Tours take place Tuesday, April 20th.
Visitors will travel through the countryside of historic Prince George County east of Petersburg, enjoying access to properties with views of the expansive James River. This driving tour also includes a private woodland garden filled with numerous native plantings, wildflowers, shade-loving moss, and a huge assortment of ferns at The Barns of Kanak. Established in 1899, the Kanak Farm was operated by the same family until its sale in 2018. It is now a special events venue and is a tour highlight.
