Summerland Quest Society to hold tour of area gardens

This year, the society is working in partnership with the Summerland Friends of the Gardens

The Summerland Quest Society for Hearing and Speech Enhancement will hold its garden tour this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The tour started 22 years ago, when society organizers created a public garden tour of several Summerland gardens. Since that time, the society has held the tour every two years.

This year, the society is working in partnership with the Summerland Friends of the Gardens.

The 11th garden tour will include 10 Summerland gardens.

Featured this year will be dry land gardens, waterfall, raised vegetable gardens, swaying grasses, serenity spots, creative colour combinations, accented by lake views. The tour is self directed with a map and a brief description of each garden attached to a ticket.

Master gardeners will be present to answer gardening questions.

The artists from Summerland De Vine Arts will have their works on display at most gardens once again.

One of the participating gardens is the Ornamental Gardens at the Summerland Research Station on Highway 97 in Trout Creek.

Artists from Summerland Pleasure Painters, Summerland Arts Club and Summerland Potters Guild will all be working and showing their talents.

Coffee will be available in the Superintendent’s House.

Tickets are on sale at Garden Works in Penticton, The Beanery in Summerland and Summerland Chamber Of Commerce on Highway 97.
