“There’s everything to spark your interest so that you’ll go home and try some of the things other people have tried,” Coordinator of the Garden Tour, Jessie Clarke said.

Clarke says one of the most extraordinary components of the tour is a massive water feature, which is essentially a large pond with running water, connected to a bridge and leading you onto an island in the middle of it all.

Visitors can also look forward to vegetable gardens, flower plots, fruit trees, and breathtaking scenery, including a garden looking over the Peace River.

Clarke also says it’s worth noting the different types of plants local gardeners have managed to grow, some of which are not qualified for our northern climate.

“We have mini climates in our yards where the air currents don’t go through, good snow coverage and things do keep,” Clarke explained. “That’s kind of exciting for people to see.”

The tour is being held Sunday July 20, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 pm, with maps being handed out at the Fort St. John Museum.
