Join us for an hour and a half guided tour of the Japanese-inspired garden in a former granite quarry in Lincolnville narrated by the owner and creator, Ken Cleaves. The landscaped acres are known as “Schleppinghurst” because most of the work of moving stones and exposing the black granite rock formations was done by hand, a project ongoing for more than 35 years.
Paths through the garden are nobedan-style (stone carpet) and the ground is uneven for walking. Tour is an hour and a half in duration. Cost is $5 to be paid at the carpooling gathering place rather than on-line as part of registration.
