“The six homeowners eagerly anticipate welcoming guests from far and wide into their homes. They invest considerable time in making last-minute fixes, updates, and artful additions,” noted new Collingswood Civic Collective President and Home & Garden Tour Co-Chair, Andrea Wedo. “As part of this year’s event, we’re fortunate to have collaborated with an organizing member of a neighboring town’s house tour, who resides right here in Collingswood. We’ve gained valuable insights and useful tips from her expertise. Following her suggestion, we created a door hanger that we placed on various homes, inviting homeowners to participate in this year’s tour. The response has been enthusiastic! We’re confident that patrons who attend the tour will delight in seeing beautiful, cozy homes. The Home & Garden Tour provides a unique opportunity to connect with neighbors while drawing inspiration for your own home and garden!” stated Wedo.

From a turn-of-the-century American Foursquare to a center hall Colonial Revival home, patrons will enjoy not only touring the properties featured—from modern to more elaborate—but also meeting the unique individuals who own and love their Collingswood homes. In turn, the hosts enjoy meeting all of the tour patrons and answering their diverse questions. “An unexpected benefit of organizing the tour is connecting with neighbors on a personal level; some even become good friends or Collingswood Civic Collective members!” noted Wedo.

As one of the most important annual fundraisers, the Home & Garden Tour follows on the heels of the Community Yard Sale. Held this year on Saturday, May 4th, many neighbors came together to make the yard sale a success, despite a few afternoon raindrops. “It’s encouraging to see such enthusiastic support of our events from our community members and we hope the tour exceeds everyone’s expectations,” commented Collingswood Civic Collective Vice President and Home & Garden Tour Co-Chair, Jen Whary.
