The local gardeners donate a piece of their work for a raffle for a charitable cause.

This year, the tour raised $7,500, which will be donated towards more park benches within the District of Lake Country.

The People’s Choice Award was presented to Debbie and Blaine Rhymer by committee leader Judy Poole.

Debbie said she believes in supporting local and aims to purchase all her plants and garden needs from businesses such as Kel-Lake Greenhouses.
