The couture garden will be one of many stops on the garden tour being put on to celebrate the Campbell River Garden Club’s 60th anniversary.

A special diamond anniversary garden tour will showcase 10 Campbell River Garden Club members’ gardens July 16 and 17.

To celebrate their 60th anniversary, the Campbell River Garden Club, the first recorded garden club in the city, is hosting a garden tour in partnership with the city’s recreation and culture department.

“A wide variety of gardens await your discovery, from a riverside paradise and country-side treasure, to a corner-lot oasis in the city and a tiny pie-shaped urban garden,” Ridgway adds. “Many of these gardens are by accomplished, lifelong gardeners who express their own personalities through their creative use of garden spaces.”

The Compost Education Centre will host a recycled garden art show, and a plant and garden book sale will be offered at one of the gardens.

Purchase $15 tickets for the two-day event that runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Campbell River Community Centre or the Sportsplex.

“Everyone is welcome, and a bus will be available for an extra charge, for those who wish to leave the driving to someone else,” Ridgway says.
