Four Amherst locations will be featured during the Portage County Master Gardeners annual Garden Parade, scheduled for Saturday, July 13, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Seven private residential gardens are included on this year’s program, including these in Amherst:

The Cook and Cass families told the Spirit, “The two families at the end of Berberg Road are happy to be back in the Master Gardeners Parade after almost 20 years! We love gardening, and we’re excited to share our expansive, ever-changing gardens one more time with other food and flower lovers.”
