The year 2020 has been challenging for the Covington Woman’s Club of GFWC (General Federation of Womens Clubs).
The club members decided to have a Virtual Garden Tour, and with the help of several local gardeners and organizations, it has come to fruition.
The cost to view the tour is $12 and 100 percent of the profits will benefit local food pantries.
