C.L.'s husband Dan will be leading the tours of their gardens on Saturday the 20th as C.L.'s brother has died unexpectedly in Wisconsin and she will be at his funeral. You will be in good hands in the lovely gardens with Dan Fornari and C.L.'s friend and garden assistent, master gardener Pamela Phipps.
There are afternoon tickets left for the tour of the Fornari's garden on September 20th. You can order tickets through Paypal through Friday morning the 19th and they will be held under your name at the entrance to the gardens: 2 Lawrence Pond Lane in Sandwich, MA. Note that we are saving equal amounts of the plants in the plant sale for the morning and afternoon tours so your chances for buying a Clematis "Sweet Summer Love" or a Hydrangea "Tuff Stuff" are the same in the afternoon as they would be in the morning. Once the available tickets for the afternoon are sold we will take down this post and the PayPal link, so if you're reading this you can buy tickets online through Friday September 19th.
If you have questions about last-minute tickets, call the BEF number at the bottom of this page.

WE NEED YOU!
If you’ve made it to our website we’re thinking that you might have an important connection to the Barnstable Public Schools. This school system might have given you or your children a strong educational and personal experience that was beneficial later in life. Maybe it was a teacher who inspired you or your kids to take a risk, or believe that you could make a difference.
However you have arrived on this page, know this: in the past four years we’ve funded grants that ranged from grade school robotic kits to high school poetry slams. We’ve supplied podcasting equipment and Museum of Science engineering programs to the intermediate students. We’ve made it possible for teachers to take their students on field trips and buy equipment that ranges from choir robes to yoga mats and digital projectors.
You can make a major difference in the educational experience of students of today who will call Barnstable their alma mater tomorrow. Please help us continue and expand the work we have started.
To make a direct donation go to the Donate page or send a check payable to the Barnstable Education Foundation to our address below.
The children who will benefit from the programs, equipment, and experiences your donations provide may not be able to say “Thanks” but we do. We sincerely and deeply appreciate the difference you’re making with your donation.
We provide experiences and programs that aren't funded by tax dollars. Value? Priceless.
