Musical sounds emerging from gardens

The good weather has finally arrived, and just in time for The Gardens on Anderton to host three musical events in July and August.

The good weather has finally arrived, and just in time for The Gardens on Anderton to host three musical events in July and August.

Each Music in the Gardens event will feature the talent of well-known local musicians, along with a peaceful and outdoorsy setting for you to enjoy. Bring a blanket or some folding chairs and relax under the shade of the trees or under our canopies.

The first Music in the Gardens event will take place July 29 from 2 until 4 p.m. Performing the first set will be Philip Nowe on the piano and Tim Croft on  bass, alongside Denny Chatelaine, Rianna Nikkel, Andy Merrick and Mary Whyte on vocals. Steve Mason’s Heartstrings, a 10 piece band, will perform the second set.

Pack a picnic and come and enjoy the afternoon of jazz music with some friends and family. 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.

While enjoying the musical entertainment, the public is also invited to tour the many imaginative beds, including the 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.

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

Check the newspaper closer to the dates for announcements regarding the upcoming Music in the Gardens events on Aug. 11 and 26.

You can also visit the Gardens website, which will be featuring information about future events, as well as additional information about the Gardens at www.gardensonanderton.org. For more information about the Gardens or becoming a member or volunteer, you may contact Joan at 250-334-3089.
