Gardens on Anderton celebrates Mother’s Day

Bring your mom, grandma, and the whole family out to the Gardens on Anderton on Mom's special day.

Bring your mom, grandma, and the whole family out to the Gardens on Anderton on Mom’s special day!

On May 12 celebrate Mother’s Day, and the season opening of the Gardens from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Due to our warm spring this year the Gardens are bright with colour and ready to be enjoyed. You are invited to tour the Gardens’ many special garden spaces including the meditation garden, labyrinth, and the rose garden (featuring 30 species!).

Watch for butterflies in the butterfly garden and honeybees from the apiary hard at work. Sit and enjoy a coffee or refreshment and while you’re at it, buy a raffle ticket to win a beautiful handcrafted garden shed.

The Gardens on Anderton is operated by the Anderton Therapeutic Gardens Society and is maintained entirely by volunteers. Located at 2012 Anderton Rd. behind Anderton Nursery (on the way to the Little River Ferry), the Gardens on Anderton is open from May to

September, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week for your enjoyment. Entry is by donation.

For more information about our Mother’s Day opening event, becoming a member, a volunteer, or reserving space for a special event, call Joan at 250-334-3089 or visit
