Market & Garden Tour to aid church rebuilding
The Holy Trinity Summer Solstice Saturday Market will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 21, at the Cathedral Parish Hall, on Fifth Street downtown between Gold and Harris Streets.

Summer Solstice Garden Tours will begin at the same location from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. the same day.

The Saturday Market is a large sale of art, kitchenware, collectables, household goods, a furnished 50-year-old elegant doll house and other objects from The Mustard Seed, the shop of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. Baked goods will also be on sale.

"We're going to have some art prints that are of quite good value," said organizer Jan Van Slyke. "We have prints by Rie Munoz, Eustace Paul Ziegler, and others."

"We'll also have some small pieces of furniture and many other items, including inexpensive things, collected over the past year from people from up and down the West Coast," she said. "They're from people who realize the importance of Holy Trinity and want to help rebuild it."

The Garden Tour includes a variety of locations around Juneau. It offers an opportunity to visit with local gardeners, admire their flower and vegetable beds, and learn from their experiences.

"It's going to be featuring some of the jewels of downtown, including The Bridge Adult Day Care Center Memory Garden," said organizer Mary Jane Tenney. "The memory garden is designed to evoke memory: Texture, smell, color, even sounds that a garden brings."

Tickets for garden tours are $12, on sale in advance at Hearthside Books or at the Cathedral Parish Hall on the day of the tours.

Both events will benefit Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, which is rebuilding after a fire two years ago. The church has been meeting in the Cathedral Parish Hall.
