The Heights Garden Society and the Heights Neighbourhood Association are teaming up to host a Sept. 8 tour, showcasing the work of local gardeners, artisans and even bees. “It will be fun, it will be inspiring,” said Diana Hall, one of the tour organizers and president of the Heights Garden Society. “It will be different. It won’t just be a focus on vegetables. It will be more attractive garden layout, and I think people will be really in interested in the local talent in the community.” This year marks the second year for the annual tour. The Sept. 8 event will include a backyard Burnaby beekeeper, and there will be art and crafts on display throughout some of the gardens. “It’s a mini culture crawl,” said Hall. “We will be displaying local artisanal products and art in private gardens.” The tour is on Sunday, Sept. 8 from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. followed by an afternoon tea. To participate, show up at the Heights community garden at 3897 Pender St. in Burnaby. Tickets are available at the garden, before the tour, by donation, and the minimum suggested donation is $5. Proceeds go to the garden association, a non-profit group that tends the Heights community garden. For more info: email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Hall at 604-291-2797.
