Denman Island Home and Garden Tour June 10-11, 2017

It is deemed by the Globe & Mail to be "one of Canada's top six horticultural events." Every two years this idyllic island throws open its garden gates, inviting the pubic for a rare up-close look at the creativity, skill and passion Denman residents pour into their properties.

This year's gardens will be particularly interesting to anyone interested in permaculture, food security, and ornamental edibles, as Corlan Vineyard, East Cider Orchard, and Two Roads Farm highlight the beauty in contemporary family farms. Bloom lovers will not be disappointed, either, as roses and lilies and a whole host of other ornamentals will be found in abundance.

Other highlights include beautiful and diverse examples of island architecture: a tiny home, a house built from reclaimed railroad timbers, a Victorian hideaway, and an elegant 1920's beach house. This weekend event provides an unforgettable experience for lovers of gardens, homes and rural charm.

Many people return year after year, and are never disappointed. Join them! Come for a day trip, or book into a cozy B&B and stay for the weekend. Tickets are on sale March 1, and can be purchased online at www.denman-conservancy.org/home-and-garden-tour/. Earlybird rate of $18 until May 15, $20 thereafter.
