301 Tonquin Park Road ­- Gill & Hilda Sadler - 3 to 6 pm only
These long-time local gardeners have honed their skills and varieties over the years to successfully grow corn big enough to eat, fruit hanging off trees, veggies of all kinds, plus two varieties of grapes!

947A Yew Wood – Nicolas and Nyla Attiana
Sustainability is key in this garden with a great rainwater catchment and composting system. This garden will also give you inspiration for what can be done in a smaller space.

638 Yew Wood - Jen and Adam Smallwood
This garden is a great example of the vegetables and varieties that grow well in our climate. Come see how you can not only feed your family but also your neighbors and with very little effort!

612 Tibbs Place - Jim Green
Garden beds, composters, greenhouses and rainwater catchment systems – all built from recycled and scrap materials! Jim also successfully grows hot house veggies outdoors.

1119 Fellowship Drive -­ Jenn Heckert
Come see how a rock pile has been transformed into a productive veggie garden from which food is harvested daily! This garden also has two greenhouses and a rainwater catchment system.

828 Ocean Park Drive -­ Suzanne & Jeff Mikus
This backyard is an oasis of food, flowers and chickens and uses a variety of cloches and covers. While visiting this garden please park across the street in the paved parking area.

664 Ocean Park Drive - Marc & Georgina Valc
This garden mixes edibles, ornamentals, chickens, rainwater catchment and a greenhouse into a attractive space that is very pleasing to the eye.

937 Sandpiper Place – Sarah Sloman & Sean Porter
Visit a local horticulturalist’s garden where edibles have been incorporated into every available nook and cranny. There probably isn’t a vegetable that she hasn’t grown.

1386 Pacific Rim Hwy – Alison Murfitt
Located down the next driveway on the left after Rosie Bay. There are two gardens to visit at this location. Although this garden is not even a year old it is producing a plethora of food, herbs and edible flowers. Alison has maximized the use of space in her homemade garden boxes. Come see what can be accomplished in a short period of time.

1386 Pacific Rim Hwy – Sarah, John, Reed & Chloe Platenius
This property is landscaped with edibles including flowers, fruit (a variety of berries, apples and plums) and herbs. With the addition of chickens, hoop houses and a great composting system, this garden is an example of how to introduce kids to gardening.
