On June 13, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven "secret" gardens will be shown as part of the Central Gorge Master Gardener Association Garden Tour.
Four of the gardens are located in Hood River and three are in White Salmon.
This is the first time gardens on both sides of the Columbia River are featured on the biennial Garden Tour.
Each garden was chosen for its unique quality and features that keep it a secret.
Also included is the Art in the Garden show at the Columbia Art Gallery in downtown Hood River.
Tickets are $7 in advance and available at Waucoma Book Store, Columbia Art Gallery and Good News Gardening in Hood River as well as Trellis Fresh Flowers in White Salmon and Dickey Farms in Bingen or $10 at any garden location and Columbia Art Gallery on the day of the tour.
