Just in time for Fathers’ Day weekend, the Urban Gardeners have organized their annual garden tour, which offers residents a look at eight inspiring gardens around the city.
Set for Saturday, June 18, from 9 a.m to 4 p.m., the self-guided tour has a little something for all gardeners with gardens which integrate edible plants, xeriscaping and urban gardening techniques, plus a variety of other styles and themes. Garden hosts will be on hand at each site to answer questions and provide their own gardening how-to tips.
Tickets are $20 and available at nurseries throughout Kelowna. Proceeds from the Garden Tour, sponsored by Communities in Bloom, will go to support community gardens and the Leon Avenue Beautification Project.
