Bardon says they will also be holding a raffle during the tour and have a total of sixteen containers to give away. She says some of those have been donated by local nurseries and others were created by Master Gardeners.  Tickets can be purchased at the Edwardsville and Glen Carbon Library, Bank of Edwardsville locations in Alton, Edwardsville and Highland and from the U of I extension office. Prices are $12 in advance or $15 if purchased the day of the tour. For more information contact the U of I extension office by calling 344-4230.
