2010 Noe Valley Garden Tour Needs You

From Richard May:
The 2010 Noe Valley Garden Tour will take place Saturday, June 12. Eight gardens are on the tour, including Japanese, Shanghai-style, four garden rooms up a slope, and a massive garden around a renovated farm house. Tickets are just $12 for 8 gardens. You can buy yours at Cover to Cover Booksellers, Independent Nature garden store, Just for Fun, Noe Valley Bakery, Omnivore Books on Food, Small Frys, Urban Nest, and Video Wave.

Or, you can earn a free ticket by volunteering to staff the entrance to one of the 8 gardens. Shifts are 9:30am to 11:30am, 11:30am to 1:30pm, and 1:30pm to 3:30pm. Volunteers check for tickets and sell more as needed. If you’d like to take a shift and get a free ticket, call Richard May at 298-2344. Volunteers are still very badly needed. Please help.
The Garden Tour is sponsored by Friends of Noe Valley. Proceeds go to "neighborhood beautification projects" like hanging flower pots, the garden in front of James Lick and the restoration of the Noe Valley Sally Brunn Branch Library.
