This day-long charity event is hosted by the Schubert Club and the Tuesday Garden Club and supported by the Northeast Tennessee Master Gardeners and the Southern Appalachian Plant Society. The Schubert Club of Jonesborough uses the money received from the Garden Gala to support several community organizations and projects. The Tuesday Garden Club has evolved over the past eight decades into a dedicated group of people interested in gardening education and promoting good stewardship of natural resources within the Washington County and Jonesborough community. The Tuesday Garden Club provides small scholarships for high school seniors pursuing post-high school horticulture-related studies as well as supporting the Washington County Jonesborough Library.
The Garden Gala is designed as a complete walking tour, but there will be a shuttle transportation provided this year.
