The Woodland Library Rose Club’s 23rd annual Garden Tour features a look at eight beautifully landscaped private gardens — one of which is at the historic Gable Mansion — and the extensive rose collection on the grounds of the Woodland Public Library.
This annual Rose Club fundraiser will run from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 27. The gardens are all in Woodland, with six downtown, one north of town off Best Ranch Road and the other west of downtown on Ashley Avenue.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Rose Club’s founding, the afternoon culminates with a vintage bridal fashion show on the grounds of the historic Gable Mansion. The fashion show will feature more than two dozen vintage bridal gowns and a narrated history of gowns of each era, ranging from 1906 to present day, with several from each decade.
The wedding gowns will be modeled by local Woodland teens. Refreshments will be served.
Festivities at the library rose garden, 250 First St., feature docent-led tours of the largest public rose collection in Woodland. Musicians and tastings of local wines, coffee, olive oil and honey will be staged throughout the gardens. The first floor of the Gable Mansion will be open to tour during the event.
