ASHLAND, Ore. — The American Association of University Women (AAUW) in Ashland held a self-guided garden tour event Sunday to help raise money for its cause. The AAUW event shows off six unique gardens ranging from ornamental plants, to sustainable practices, to fruit and vegetable gardens.
The event also features local music at the gardens. “It’s been lovely. We’ve had lots of people here today and the singers are here … and everybody has been very gracious and very thankful to be a part of this,” said garden owner Merrillynn White.
AAUW supports scholarships for some students at Southern Oregon University and Rogue Community College. The organization also uses funding from this event to conduct research, among other projects.
