Back by popular demand,  join garden expert, author and radio host Scott Austin for an in depth exciting tour of Summerland Gardens. Scott is a garden celebrity in the South Okanagan and the manager of Garden Works Penticton, and has extensive knowledge of the Summerland Gardens.

During the Summerland Gardens Centennial celebrations in July 2016 multiple garden tours took place and the one led by Scott was particularly popular. Now Scott returns to help us launch our new Heritage Information Kiosk and continue to celebrate both the history of the Gardens and it’s modern day beauty.

Ticket holders will also be treated to a delicious catered brunch, which will feature vegetables grown on site at the Gardens by students in our Intergenerational Landed Learning program. Cost includes a copy of Scott Austin’s book Sun, Sand and Sagebrush.

Seats are all booked!
