Explore the upcoming Wellness Fair in the beautiful Gardens on Anderton and support a great cause.

Gardening is good for the soul.

It also has very positive effects on one’s physical, emotional and mental health, so what better place could there be to have a health and wellness fair than in a garden? The Gardens on Anderton – to be exact.

On Sunday, Aug. 30 at the second annual Wellness Fair in The Gardens, a great selection of health and wellness providers will be exhibiting their services and wares, and sharing their expertise and knowledge.

The fair opens at 11 a.m., so come visit the many booths and meet practitioners, watch demonstrations and sample products. Door prizes will be drawn every half hour, so come early and stay a while to discover what’s on offer and increase your chance of winning a prize. Explore the many exhibitors and find essential oils, aloe vera products, a variety of health practitioners, and organic food and herbal products. Learn about healing products and services, tai chi, counselling services and more.

And while you’re there, stroll through the gorgeous surroundings of The Gardens on Anderton, listening to soothing live music, performed by Mystic Valley Voices.

You will enjoy the many unique areas of The Gardens, lovingly cared for entirely by member volunteers. Walk the labyrinth, smell the roses or sit in the meditation garden. Walk the loop, visit the butterfly garden, or contemplate the bees flying to and fro in the apiary. The Gardens have accessible pathways throughout, so don’t worry if you’re on wheels.

The Wellness Fair in The Gardens will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are just $5 per person at the gate. Proceeds from the event support a great cause.

The fair is a fundraiser to support the Anderton Therapeutic Gardens Society that operates The Gardens on Anderton to promote health and wellness through interactive gardening activities for people of all ages and abilities.

Monies raised will go a long way to helping ensure the ongoing availability of The Gardens to the people of the Comox Valley.
