The wait is almost over and it'll be sure to have been worth it for hardcore gardeners and interested newbies alike.

It's Castlegar's fifth annual Garden and Nature Fest being held at the spacious parking area of the Castlegar Community Complex.

What better activity to include in your own Victoria Day weekend celebrations?

Be sure to head over for a world of ideas and supplies, plus a chance to commune with others who share the love of the garden.

This is an "open air festival rich in treasures…plants of all kinds: perennials, vegetables and shrubs, native plants, herbs, trees, mosaics and metal art." Admission to the Fest is… FREE.

Please accept your invitation, stop by, relax and enjoy some tasty local food.

Garden and Nature Fest 2014 welcomes you… this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
