Step into my Garden: Gordon Harris' garden was featured in last year's Campbell River Garden and Art Tour

Art gallery puts out a call for gardens

Annual Garden and Art Tour planning is underway

This is the time of year when thoughts turn to spring and eyes turn to the garden.

The frogs and salamanders are on the move and the snow is melting (touch wood). Bulbs are popping up all over and robins will be bobbing along in force any day.

The Campbell River Garden & Art Tour selection committee is eager to build their roster of gardens for the tour which is set for June 25 and 26. Each year the committee looks for new gardens to add to outstanding favourites from past years. The committee is open to all gardens that are a feast for the eye, from imaginative use of small lots to well-cared for rural acreages, and everything in between.

The tour is a great opportunity to share your passion with both fellow gardeners and wannabes who delight in gardens and admire the devotion one requires. Are you ready to show your own garden this year?  Do you know of a beautiful garden others would enjoy? All suggestions are encouraged. The selection committee will tour properties in advance.

Proceeds from this popular fundraising event are used for children’s programs at the Art Gallery.  For more information call the Gallery at 250-287-2261 or drop by 1235 Shoppers Row.  Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, noon till 5 p.m.
