Summerland Ornamental Gardens Society hosting information session to join

Gardens seek new members

The Friends of the Summerland Ornamental Gardens Society (FOG) are welcoming those with a love of gardening to come learn more about their society.

The gardens have been cared for by the Friends of the Summerland Ornamental Gardens Society (FOG) since 1991 when Agriculture Canada — now Agriculture Agri-food Canada (AAFC) — phased out their horticulture program.

Showcasing ornamental horticulture, natural and man-made landscapes as well as heritage preservation in the community, the gardens have remained a special place in the South Okanagan.

Locals can come out for an information session on Saturday, March 2, to learn all about the gardens and what volunteer opportunities be of interest.

The session takes place at the George Ryga Arts & Cultural Centre in Summerland from 10:13 a.m. to 1 p..m.
