Flower Power winner

Castanet recently held a photo contest for a pair of tickets to tour some of the top gardens in Kelowna. The tour is called 'Flower Power, Cool Digs and Groovy Gardens’ and we are proud to announce that Gerrit and Wilma Van Vliet are this year’s winners.  

The 18th Annual Kelowna Garden Tour runs Saturday, June 13th, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m..

This self-guided tour of nine gardens includes a chef’s garden that provides produce for a winery restaurant, a downtown garden with a martini gate in the backyard connecting them to their neighbours, a secret garden and a yard that has been transformed from traditional grass and flowerbeds to raised box vegetable planters.

Gardening experts Ken Salvail, Gwen Steele and Okanagan Master Gardeners are on site to answer questions along with artists, demonstrations and tastings throughout the gardens scattered around the city.

All proceeds go towards Growing Chefs, an elementary classroom gardening and cooking program, and to Central Okanagan Community Gardens.

For tickets and more information about the tour you can go to the Flower Power website.
