Secret Garden Week 2018

Secret Garden Week is one of the highlights of the summer social season in Middle Tennessee. The series of events—which allows participants to get sneak peeks at beautiful gardens hidden in backyards or behind walls or fences in and around Murfreesboro—also serves as a major fundraiser for the Discovery Center.

This year, we’re planning a breezy Italian summer supper at the Georgetown home of Christy Fancher. Accentuated by the verdant views of the Stones River Country Club’s golf course, we are transforming Christy’s backyard into a garden party that will remind you of the Amalfi Coast. With guidance from Modern Vintage Events, our party chairs, Sarah Beth Clark and Katie Lane, are planning a night to remember.

From the backyards of amateur gardeners to professional landscaping projects, the tours on June 2 and 3 feature the horticultural talents of local residents. Tour stops include Renee and Tim Demonbreum, Brett and Julia Neal, Nurture Nook, Quinn’s Mercantile and the Discovery Center.

Maps of the Garden Tour stops – along with tickets for purchase – will be available at the Discovery Center.


Secret Garden Party sponsorships are a great way to make a positive impact on the community, mix and mingle with Murfreesboro’s finest, and showcase your business or family. For more information or to become a sponsor, email Caitlyn at

Proceeds benefit the Discovery Center.
