Vegetbale Garden Tour - June 1st

On June 1 from 12:30-4:30 pm, there will be a garden tour at the farm of Duane and Janice Carney and Thomas and Chris Yunick of Unionville. These experienced gardeners have a lot to see! It’s amazing to see all the rain barrels, raised beds, fruit trees, greenhouses and garden areas these local gardeners have on their farms. You won’t want to miss this tour. There will be fresh, local produce available for sampling if available at that time.

We will start at the Carney farm. Directions to the farm: Address is 39694 State Hwy. W, Unionville, MO. Coming from the south (i.e. Kirksville), take Highway 63 north to Queen City. Turn right (west) onto Highway W. Follow Highway W until you go through Martinstown and go 2 miles outside the town. They will be on the north side of the road. They have a gray-sided house with a three-car garage next to it and a couple of other outbuildings to the west. Coming from the north, you can take either Highway W off Highway136 if you are coming from the west or Highway 149 if you are coming from the east. If you take Highway W, go 8 miles and we will be on the north side of the road. If you take Highway 149, go approximately 6 miles until you see Highway W going to the west. Go down Highway W 2 miles. The house is on the north side of the road.

Mark your calendars, ask for the afternoon off, and come see these amazing gardens. You will learn some things from these experienced gardeners that you can incorporate into your own garden. If there is enough interest we will provide transportation. There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is required so we know how much food to prepare and if we need to rent vans. You can call the Adair County Extension Office at 660-665-9866 or email.
