Slocan Valley Art and Garden tour blooms again

After 20 years, the Slocan Valley Arts Council is passing the pruning shears to the West Kootenay Permaculture Co-op Association.

After 20 years of dedication to the art and garden tour, the Slocan Valley Arts Council is passing the pruning shears to the West Kootenay Permaculture Co-op Association. With roots firmly in place, the event continues to flourish, taking place Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This year there are six exciting gardens from Slocan Park to Slocan, each one different yet inspiring and featuring local artists. There will be an outdoor concert of the Slocan Valley Community Band at 2 p.m. at Rabia’s. Take in the gardens or the art or just enjoy a day in the beautiful Slocan Valley.

Several businesses have joined in helping to make the event a success. You will find them on our map, available online at kootenayfood.com and facebook.com/kootenayfood and printed guides will be available prior to the tour at local businesses and the gardens.

Organizers Shauna Fidler and Sharon Butler say they are indebted to the arts council’s commitment over the years, especially Laura Tiberti and grateful for the opportunity to continue the event. They hope this new direction is a long lasting and fruitful way for the Slocan Valley Art and Garden Tour to continue and to inspire people with the beauty of art and nature that so abundant in our community.
