Ken Cleaves will open his garden, Shleppinghurst, for a guided tour to benefit the Lincolnville Community Library Saturday, Aug. 13, at 3 p.m.

The Japanese-inspired garden covers 1.5 acres and features lush evergreens, extensive bedrock, a granite quarry, a small pond and meandering walking paths. Cleaves said all these elements make the garden beautiful year-round.

The cost of the tour is $10 and registration is required. Participants will meet at the library at 2:30 p.m. and carpool to the garden, where there is limited parking.

The library is located at 208 Main St. For more information or to register, call 763-4343 or e-mail
