East Vancouver Private Garden Tour, Sunday, June 16, 2013 (Father's Day)!
This year's East Van Garden Tour will be on Sunday, June 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost is $12 per person. You can sign up through Britannia, in person, by phone using a credit card (604-718-5800), or online (britanniacentre.org), or you can purchase tickets in person any time between now and June 16th at Figaro's Garden Centre, 1896 Victoria Drive (at 3rd Avenue).
This self-guided tour will take you into some of the more creative and special areas of East Vancouver. Participants will have the opportunity to visit about a dozen gardens, as well as to see examples of public spaces which have been "greened" by residents of East Vancouver. NOTE: Gardens are not wheelchair accessible, children must be 12 years of age or older or babes in arms, and no pets are allowed. Photos are allowed only with permission of the gardeners. A limited number of tickets will be available on Tour day, so it's best to get your tickets in advance.
This tour is jointly sponsored by Britannia Neighbours, Britannia Community Centre, and Figaro's Garden Centre. Proceeds go to Britannia Neighbours to develop and maintain green spaces in the neighborhood, and to undertake projects which foster a sense of community.
