Enjoy a day in and around Mifflinburg touring 6 local gardens. The featured gardens are Keith and Meg Phelps 403 Green St. One of the town's original log houses, built ca. 1778, was the site of the first Union County court in 1813. The yard has been cultivated since the Phelps took ownership. Stone-lined gravel paths meander through the exterior. Janie Feaster home 16 Saratoga Lane is a modern home, built in 2005 features a blend of p lants such as river birch, blue atlas cedar and boxwood. John & Nancy Showers (317 Vine St. New Berlin) have a brick Federal period home built in 1826. This secluded mid-town escape includes a cascading patio with a pond, greenhouse and potting shed, raised vegetable garden, myriad potted dahlias and a fire pit with paths meandering throughout the area. Willow Stone Farm (Ben Reeder) is a modern/primitive farmhouse on the site of a 1780 log home which was lost to a fire in 2013. The garden has been completely revamped this year. The Elias Center for the Performing Arts was built in 1806 as a union church and was Mifflinburg's first church. It is surrounded with an eclectic mixture of perennial and annual plants to attract bees and a special receptacle has been added for the pollinators. The Artisan Corner Co-op features local artisans who are masters of their craft. There will be native succulents and flowering herbs in the numerous window boxes along with container gardens. This building was a hotel ca. 1860. Local musicians and artisans will be in the gardens.
