The gallery 2 Garden Tour offers an amazing showing of gardens from Grand Forks to Greenwood, July 6th. Bron and Sons Nursery, a new addition, starts the tour in Grand Forks by sharing their wholesale enterprise. The event runs from 9 to 4 p.m.

There will certainly be something original to see at each location and whether you’re taking the tour for knowledge, inspiration or motivation, at the end of the day you will be refreshed after admiring the fruits of someone else’s labour. 

If that wasn’t already enough, artists and musicians will be on site at several of the locations to make the day even more pleasurable.

As residents of the Boundary we’re being asked to think regionally more and more and while the concept isn’t exactly a new way to think, gallery 2 has taken the notion seriously while planning their bi-annual Garden Tour. Gallery 2 serves the whole Boundary area when it comes to providing quality art and heritage exhibits and now would like to showcase creativity of another nature – “mother nature”. 

Gardeners by their very nature are big-hearted people – sharing seeds, sharing zucchini, dividing perennials amongst friends and offering advice. These enthusiastic and willing growers have generously consented to share their creative spirit and passion for gardening and we hope you’ll support their efforts on July 6th.  You won’t be disappointed, and remember “an hour in the garden puts all of life’s problems into perspective”.

Tickets are $15 if you are driving or you can pay an additional $20 to take the bus. For more ticket information call gallery 2 at 250-442-2211.
