The Lake Country Garden Club held its annual plant sale recently with all proceeds going to support a bursary that the club provides to a local student who wishes to pursue studies in the horticultural/agricultural area. For the last several years the club has given a bursary of $1,000. Over the years the garden club has also supported the Lake Country Food Bank, the Boys and Girls Club, the Community Garden and the planters at the Lake Country Art Gallery with funds raised from the annual Garden Tours.

This year the annual Lake Country Garden Tour will be on June 8 from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. There will be 10 gardens on the tour with local artists at each garden hosting a toonie raffle for a piece of art.

Master gardeners will be at various locations to answer gardening questions. Vic MacDonald of Bees Incorporated will be speaking as will Ken Salvail at the Community Garden.

This year’s major tour sponsors are: Arrowleaf Cellars, Cooper’s Foods, Interior Land Reclamation, Kens’s Horticultural Services, Kel-Lake Greenhouses, Lake Country Timbermart, Lisola Bella Bistro, Nurturing Nature Organics, The Jammery, UBR Services, Winfield IDA Pharmacy and Woodsdale General Store.

Tickets for the tour are at Kel-Lake Grenhouses, Woodsdale General Store, Winfield IDA Pharmacy, Farmer’s Fruit & Produce, Art Knapp Plantland and Green & Bear It. The proceeds go to local projects.

The Lake Country Garden Club meets the third Thursday of most months. New members are always welcome. For more information: lcgctour2013@hotmail.com or 250-766-3269.
