Tour of Summerland's Private Gardens - For a Good Cause

The Friends of Summerland Ornamental Gardens society is hosting an Autumn Garden Tour on Saturday, September 28, from 9 am to 4 pm. Nine venues, including seven creative, spectacular private gardens and two inspiring public gardens, are on the Tour. Tour participants will enjoy art, food and wine along with gardens. Works of art by Okanagan artists and artisans will be on display at three gardens, while at two gardens, gourmet treats and refreshments will be provided by gourmet chefs from Crêperie OooLaLa and True Grain Breads, with wine tastings from Summerland Bottleneck Drive wineries, Thornhaven Estate and Okanagan Crush Pad. Each garden on this self-guided tour was chosen for its individual style of landscaping, landscape architecture, and plant choices, with a special focus on edible, natural and water-wise design. This event is a fund-raiser for the non-profit Friends of the Summerland Ornamental Gardens. Tickets are the bargain price of $20 and are available from the following outlets.
