Every summer TRU Friends of the Gardens offers free guided tours of the Horticulture Gardens, with a different theme many of the days.
Tours run Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30pm, start at the back of House 10 (located behind the Campus Activity Centre), and led by a member of TRU Friends of the Gardens. Reservations are not required, parking is free, and taking pictures and asking questions is encouraged.
Dress for the weather and bring insect repellant as it may be buggy.
See below for this summer’s schedule.
Can’t make a Wednesday?
Special tours can be arranged on request by phoning 250-318-1094 and leaving a message.
TRU Friends of the Gardens is a not-for-profit and gladly accepts donations in order to continue offering their various education and outreach initiatives.
Because plants are always coming and going, it could be a good idea to take in a few tours through the season.
