2011 Beaches Garden Tour June 26th

A hundred years ago, it was cottage country. Today, it’s Toronto’s laid-back Beach neighbourhood, along the lake in the city’s east end.

This Sunday, June 26, 17 private gardens in this nature-loving area will be open on the Beach Garden Society’s annual garden tour. From small, intimate spaces to ravine-side surprises, you’ll see some of the best-kept green spaces in town.
Flowers, trees, lake breezes, music, free refreshments—all for just $10 per ticket. Plus, meet Toronto author Steven Biggs in one of the gardens, who will be signing his new book, No Guff Vegetable Gardening (which we reviewed back in April).

This private garden tour of Toronto’s Beach community is always a must-see (here’s a peek at the show two years ago in 2009; in 2010, Beach gardens were the feature of Through the Garden Gate).

Tickets are only ten dollars, available at local merchants: East End Garden Centre, 1395 Queen St. E.; Beachwood Flower Shop, 1916 Queen St. E.; Pippin’s Tea Company, 2098 Queen St. E.; Pet Valu, 2210 Queen St. E.; and Cirone’s Fine Foods, 2312 Queen St. E. Also at Bill’s Garden Centre, 903 Pape; Centre 55, 97 Main St.; East of Eliza, 1960 Gerrard E., and Trinity Gallery, 926 Kingston.
