Garden hosts musical event

The Gardens on Anderton is set to host the last of three summer musical events.

To conclude a successful season of Music in the Gardens, the Gardens on Anderton is set to host the last of three summer musical events.

This Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., Inclusion and the North Island Old Time Fiddlers will perform. Gates will open at 1, and it is strongly advised to arrive early to find a spot in the shade.

Inclusion is a Campbell River band with several music-loving members that face a variety of developmental disabilities. Their goal is to raise awareness, promote understanding and to challenge stereotypes relating to individuals with special needs.

To promote their message, they have been performing their music over the past two years at various venues throughout Campbell River and Vancouver Island.

The British Columbia Old Time Fiddlers’ Association promotes and encourages old time music, to foster connections among the fiddling communities throughout B.C. and the rest of Canada, and to encourage young people to take up fiddling and violin playing.  Members also play all kinds of other instruments or they may simply love the music and enjoying dancing.

The North Island Branch has 65 members with 30 very active members and covers the area from Qualicum to the northern tip of Vancouver Island.

While enjoying the musical entertainment, the public is also invited to tour the many imaginative beds of the Gardens, including the Rose, Butterfly and Meditation gardens. The Gardens on Anderton, operated by the Anderton Therapeutic Gardens Society, is a volunteer-based organization that provides a unique and therapeutic garden through diverse, enjoyable, interactive and healing activities for people of all ages and abilities.

The Gardens also feature 36 allotment beds available for rent for those who do not have any garden space at home, although there is a waiting list.

Each Music in the Gardens event has featured the talent of local musicians, along with a peaceful and outdoorsy setting for the audience to enjoy. Bring a blanket or some folding chairs and relax under the shade of the trees or under our canopies.

We are sorry for any inconvenience, but pets are not allowed in the Gardens, with the exception of service animals. Admission is by donation, with all proceeds to support the Gardens.

The Gardens are located at 2012 Anderton Rd. Comox, behind the Anderton Nursery (on the way to the Little River Ferry.)

To find out more information about the Gardens you can visit the website, which will be featuring information about the summer events, as well as additional information about the Gardens.
