East Van Garden Tour 2011 June 19th

The East Van Garden Tour is happening Sunday June 19 (Father’s Day), from 10am – 4pm. It is a great tour, with more than a dozen home gardens (mostly flowers, but some veggies too) and community green spaces, all walking distance from Figaro’s Garden Centre at 3rd and Victoria. Now in its eighteenth year, the tour is a fundraiser for Britannia Neighbours, Green Streets members who maintain the Napier Greenway at Britannia Community Centre.

Tickets only
$10 per person. Pre-regist ration encouraged. Call 604-718-5800  visit the Britannia Community Centre Info Centre (1661 Napier Street). On the day of the tour, there will be a limited number of tickets (cash only) at Figaro’s Garden Centre (1896 Victoria Drive).

On the day of the tour go to Figaro’s to pick up your map, enjoy some refreshments and then head out at your own pace. All gardens are within comfortable walking distance. Gardeners will be home to answer questions about their plants and gardens. A Master Gardener will also be on site.

Here’s a tip. Most people arrive right around 10am, so there’s a lot of people touring at the start. Avoid the rush and come a bit later. You can also head over to Commercial Drive before or after the tour to take in Car Free Day!  
Note that most gardens are not wheelchair/stroller accessible. Children must be either babes-in-arms or 12 yrs or older. Pets are not allowed. Photos are allowed only with the garden owner’s permission.
