Highlights from some of the unique gardens that were part of this year's popular event

Denman Islanders have been growing their own food for decades, long before the word “locavore” was coined. This year, there was more interest than ever in the super-productive food gardens on the tour. Des and Sandy Kennedy made this sign so that they wouldn't have to answer the same questions again and again. Welcoming up to 800 visitors a day does get tiring, although the generous tour hosts report that sharing the spaces they work so hard on with appreciative guests is incredibly fulfilling.
