Join us on this self-guided tour of enchanting private Vancouver Gardens—a fundraiser for Heritage Vancouver Society.

There is something to delight all tastes whether you are a plant “person” or just wanting ideas for outdoor spaces including ponds and water features, entertaining areas and creatively designed hardscaping (grass replacement!), and elements such as gazebos, custom fencing, gates, and garden ornamentation. Or you want an enjoyable day out visiting charming Vancouver neighborhoods and gardens.

Highlights include grand estates with spectacular views and lush plantings, intimate courtyards showing how to be creative with a small space and achieve a private sanctuary, a plant lover’s paradise, an all native plant garden, winning ways with vegetable and fruits, and a delightful cottage garden created and tended by the renter of a 100+ year old home in a historic neighborhood.

Get inspired by some creative DIY projects including a garden designed by the homeowners after taking Ron Rule’s UBC class.

Don’t miss out, this will be a spectacular tour this year-most gardens never seen on tour before! Get your tickets now. Advance purchase recommended. Numbers are limited.

Thank you to our sponsors!
