Blvd gardens? Tour-iffic!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOn Saturday August 18, it was tour-time!  Virginie (City of Victoria), Lora (Pollinator Partnership Canada), and me, Mike Large (local lawyer and boulevard gardener) gathered together with about 20 garden enthusiasts, to do a walking-and-talking tour of street-side gardens.  We started at the Haultain Common, spent some time at the Haultain Annex (pictured here, in June), and then zig-zagged up and down nearby streets, checking out Fernwood’s boulevard gardens and talking about the City’s boulevard gardening guidelines.  The tour ended with snacks on Garden Street. Naturally!

Thanks to Virginie and Lora for drawing such positive attention to these noble projects.  And thanks to Ryann at Concrete Garden for blogging a bit about the tour.  Tour-iffic!
