Horticultural Society raises money for Glacier View Lodge

Horticultural Society gave $750 to enhance a special garden space at Glacier View Lodge.

At the October meeting of the Comox Valley Horticultural Society, $750 was given to further enhance a special garden space at Glacier View Lodge.

The money was raised during the spring Gardens in Bloom tour, an initiative of the CVHS to support special community garden spaces, such as the one at Glacier view.

Isabelle Petch noted that the money would be used for additional soil and to extend the garden beds directly outside of resident room windows.

As the group cleaned the garden, a resident wheeled through the garden with her caregiver.

Thanking the group for the donation, Liz Friis, director of resident lifestyle and community programs, said, “You can see that even on a brisk fall day such as this, our families and residents still enjoy the garden. Thank you so much for making this a beautiful place for residents, families, staff and volunteers to enjoy.”
