Why this Vernon non-profit fundraiser needs your amazing garden

A Vernon non-profit is looking for some amazing backyards to show off as part of its annual garden tour fundraiser.

The society that runs the People Place building, which provides space for numerous other non-profits in the city, is getting ready for its 20th annual People Place Society Garden Tour fundraiser. The event is its major fundraiser of the year.

So far, the society has three gardens taking part and would like to find at least three more people willing to volunteer their gardens for the tour.

The society says its looking for gardens of all shapes and sizes, from xeriscaping, to vegetable and flower gardens. It also notes the gardens don’t need to be masterpieces and can be large or small.

The People Place is also looking for volunteers to help on the day of the tours.

In the past, some of the gardens hosts have taken an active role by talking about their gardens or even taking people on the tour themselves. Generally, they're self-guided tours.

The People Place Garden Tour goes from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 8.

If you have a garden you’d like featured in the fundraising, or know someone with a green thumb, send an email to either peopleplacesociety@gmail.com or manager@peopleplacevernon.ca, or call 250-558-6585.
