Get ready to immerse yourself in a day of historic architecture and charming town and country garden retreats at CFUW Perth and District’s Home and Garden Tour.


“Our inaugural event offers you a full-day journey through captivating homes and

gardens nestled in and around town, each showcasing the talents of our creative

community, “says Home & Garden Tour chair Nancy Chevrier.


Tickets, $30 each, “gives guests a wonderful opportunity to enjoy these properties while contributing to a very worthwhile cause,” adds club president Marlene Starkman. “All of the proceeds support our Education Awards fund, helping women of Lanark County pursue a post-secondary education, and our donations to local advocacy and education activities.”


With the flexibility to explore at your own pace, guests will have the chance to visit two enchanting homes, along with 11 meticulously curated gardens. Notably, five of these gardens are proudly maintained by members of the Perth Horticultural Society, showcasing their dedication and expertise in horticulture.


Plan to stop a bit longer at select houses to listen to live music — piano, guitar, cello, violin and flute, and enjoy original oil, acrylic and watercolour paintings, plus stained glass. A catered Garden Picnic Lunch featuring an assortment of sandwiches, desserts and cold drinks can be pre-purchased for $20. Lunch will be waiting for you Stop No. 7! Also at Stop No. 7 be sure to participate in our raffle of enticing items generously donated by local small businesses.


Tickets are available online at Ticketsplease.ca, as well as four locations in Perth: Fall River Fashions, Fashion Envy, Kelly’s Flowers and Gifts Boutique, and Mariposa Design Inc. Contact Liz at 647-532-6888 to reserve your ticket or with questions. The printed Garden Passport includes a map and description of the houses. Act fast as availability is limited!


**Supporting Education and Empowerment of Women**

The Home and Garden Tour is CFUW Perth & District’s first major fundraiser since COVID, and symbolizes a renewed commitment to community engagement and support. Proceeds from ticket sales, business sponsorships, and charitable donations contribute to funding university, college, and post-secondary education for local women.


Since 1999, Perth and District CFUW has distributed over $240,275 in Education

Awards to 195 deserving recipients, empowering individuals to pursue their educational aspirations. Our Education Awards is the reason many businesses owners and community partners are sponsors for the tour as it aligns with their commitment to community development and charitable causes. We extend our sincere gratitude to the local businesses whose generosity and support have made this event possible.
