2017 Artists in the Garden

The Artists in the Garden Tour was established in 2000 by a small group of garden enthusiast in efforts to promote an annual fundraising event to benefit Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre.

This will be our 18th garden tour, which is still organized by a small group of garden enthusiasts. And, as is tradition, this years’ tour is on Saturday June 17, 2017.

At the moment the hunt is on for new gardens, artists and sponsors. If you are interested, now is the time to join us by contacting and signing up before it is too late! Us our “Contact Us” section or email

As always the committee will be looking for plants that you could donate for the annual plant sale!! Follow up information will be in next Hearth Place newsletter.
