The Piedmont Historical Society and the Piedmont Parks and Recreation Department are joining forces to put on a Piedmont Yard and Garden tour July 13.

The yard and garden tour is the brainchild of Lois Dickerson, chairman of the public relations committee for the Piedmont Historical Society.

“We decided we’d do this as something to promote the community,” Dickerson said.

The tour offers people the opportunity to visit homes in the Piedmont area with exceptional yards and gardens. At each stop along the tour, participants will be able to speak with the homeowners and get gardening tips and ideas to use at their own homes. In addition, there will be a drawing for door prizes at each stop. The prizes will include gardening related items.

When Dickerson announced the Yard and Garden Tour at a Piedmont Chamber of Commerce meeting, it caught the notice of Lyn Land, chairman of Parks and Recreation. Land has been working toward getting Piedmont classified as the first Community Wildlife Habitat with the National  Wildlife Federation. Read more →
