The Marietta Garden Tour raises money to maintain one of the many historic buildings in downtown Marietta.

The First Unitarian Universalist Church is over 150 years old and it takes a lot to keep it in good shape.

This fundraiser takes people on a tour of some of the greatest gardens in the city. And you can purchase some of the plants they have on display as well.

"Plus we have this wonderful plant sale right here. Where people dig plants from their gardens and bring them in. So if you get something at the plant sale you know you're getting something that somebody else liked and does well around here," says plant sale chairman Nancy Novak.

One garden featured on the tour belongs to Jim and Kathy Boersma. They say it took a lot of time to get the garden ready, but the result is amazing.

More than 150 people stopped by to take a look. And there's a lot to take in. A water fall, putting green, and sand pit just to name a few.
