If you love gardens and gardening, be sure to mark your calendars for July 7-8 as the Campbell River Art Gallery presents its annual Garden and Art Tour.

There will be many new gardens on offer, with locations ranging from north Campbell River to Black Creek. There will be something for everyone, including a compact garden with a ‘family, food and fun’ theme; a long-established garden, started in the 1960s, featuring everything from ornamental kiwis to a grapevine arbour; as well as properties with fascinating greenhouses; a new rose garden; beautiful water features and much more.

There will some old favourites on the tour as well as some gorgeous new treats. There will be artists at work in several  gardens, capturing the scene.
