CRANBERRY TWP - Public gardens are welcome additions to any community.
An outstanding example of a public garden maintained by the Penn State Extension Master Gardeners of Butler County is at the Cranberry Township Municipal Center, 2525 Rochester Road.
Since 2011, under the direction of Peg Campbell and Eileen Tallarico, the Master Gardeners have designed and maintained this public garden.
The garden is a combination of pollinator and herb gardens. All plants are labeled for identification. Master Gardener volunteers can answer questions and provide information about the plants and gardens.
This year, the Cranberry Township gardens will be on the Southern Butler County Garden Club Tour from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 14. Tickets are available by visiting www.southernbutlercountygardenclub.org. Master Gardener volunteers will be in the gardens to answer questions and provide information.
