Plant sale a garden paradise

Gardeners gathered in Chilliwack Saturday for the 18th annual Gwynne Vaughan Plant Sale and Garden Party.

The event is one of Chilliwack’s biggest social events, with a variety of plants for sale and expertise for free. There were artisan booths, several exhibits for children to explore, including, the Rotary Train, and the widely popular, super decadent Strawberry Tea, boasting real china and cloth linens, located in the Heritage Orchard under the old apple trees.

The plant sale is a fundraiser for the Gwynne Vaughan Park, located on the corner of Williams Road and Hope River Road.

All fees obtained from booth and tent rentals go to upkeep of both the park grounds, and the Edwardian heritage house that was built at the turn of the century, as well as 10 per cent of all sales.
