The Garden Tea Party is an opportunity to get together with our daughters, sisters, neighbors and friends, of all ages and stages, to sit together over a cup of tea (and a few treats and sweets!), to share some of those stories, learn from each other, maybe take home a garden tip or two, as well as some seed packets and a special little gift!
