The Revelstoke Garden & Art Tour is exactly that — a tour of local gardens featuring local artists.

Second annual Garden & Art Tour takes place Saturday

Be sure to mark your calendar for the upcoming Revelstoke Garden & Art Tour this Saturday, July 26, from 1–6 p.m.

Contributed by the North Columbia Environmental Society

Be sure to mark your calendar for the upcoming Revelstoke Garden & Art Tour this Saturday, July 26, from 1–6 p.m. The second annual event will feature some gardens from last year as well as some new exciting ones.

The event is being organized by the North Columbia Environmental Society’s Local Food Initiative Group to promote local food and artists within our community.

There will be a diverse assortment of gardens located throughout our community as well as talented and creative artists.  Some of the features in this year’s participating gardens are spectacular flower beds, backyard chickens, fig trees and accessible gardening. The Revelstoke Museum will be taking part in the event showcasing their wonderful heritage garden.  We are excited with our eclectic mix of artists such as pottery, cooking, painting and even hair design. Many of the artists will have art for sale.

The event is self-guided and encourages participants to walk or bike between garden venues. Garden and Art tour maps will be available the day of the event starting at 12:30pm at the Revelstoke Community Garden located at the United Church. There is a suggested donation of $5 per person. For more information or if you would like to volunteer for the event, please visit northcolumbia.org or e-mail RevelstokeLFI@gmail.com.
