If you’ve ever had a desire to peek behind the front door of a beautiful home or sneak into a backyard garden, you’ll love the Eastport Civic Association’s 6th Annual Home & Garden Tour. The tour, which will be held Sunday, June 12, 2011 from 1 to 5 p.m., will feature 10 unique homes and two gardens at the farthest end of the Eastport peninsula, an area surrounded on three sides by water.

Tour participants will have an opportunity to see behind the front doors and into the gardens of these lovely Eastport homes, nearly half of which offer amazing water views. Located on Chester Avenue, Eastern Avenue, Horn Point Court and First Street, the homes are within easy walking distance of one another. Also featured on the tour will be an Eastport storm water runoff garden completed recently through the Watershed Stewards Academy.

Proceeds from the tour will go to local community programs sponsored by the Eastport Civic Association. Funds raised from last year’s tour helped support fishing and ecological camps for elementary school students, neighborhood crime prevention programs, and flowers on the Spa Creek bridge, and helped fund the Eastport Volunteer Fire Department’s new ladder truck and the Annapolis Drum and Bugle Corps.

Tickets are limited, and advance purchase, at a cost of $20, is recommended. To purchase tickets, go to http://eastportcivic.org/tour2011.html. If still available, tickets will be sold for $25 on June 12 at Horn Point Harbor Marina, 103 Eastern Avenue. The tour will be held rain or shine.
