Old Town buzzes over inaugural garden tour

Jul 22, 2016

Current State’s Kevin Lavery reports on the inaugural Old Town Garden Tour this Sunday.


Lansing’s Old Town has a long tradition as a mecca for artists and musicians. Now, some in the historic neighborhood are hoping to add gardening to its repertoire.

This Sunday, nearly a dozen businesses and individuals are hosting the first Old Town Garden Tour as a fundraiser for the Old Town Commercial Association.

Current State’s Kevin Lavery met Michael Beebe at his home a couple of blocks from the heart of Old Town. He’s built his backyard sanctuary as a slice of the tropics off Turner Street.
