New venues wanted for the annual Campbell River Art Gallery's Garden and Art Tour, taking place July 5-6

Spring is here and flowers are starting to bloom, which means the Campbell River Art Gallery’s Garden and Art Tour committee is on the lookout for new gardens for this year’s tour.

The tour, a fundraiser to support children’s programs through the year, takes place July 5-6 and is sponsored by Royal LePage. The gallery is looking for new gardens to add to its roster. The committee hopes to find a range of styles and sizes, from wilderness acreages to creatively-developed city lots.

Gardeners who regularly open their properties for this tour enjoy the opportunity to share their passion for growing things. Tour goers are generally fellow gardeners who delight in this opportunity to get new ideas for landscaping and tips about what plants work well in our region.

Call the gallery at 250-287-2261 or e-mail if you think your garden would be suitable, or if you’d like to recommend a friend or neighbour’s.
