Sooke Secret Garden Tour

Scenes from the gardens

Sooke's secret Garden Tour was a fundraiser for the orchestra

Besides featuring some amazing hidden gardening gems in Sooke and area, the Sooke Secret Garden Tour had so many other hidden art treasures. The tour brought people to nine different locations stretching from Sassenos to Otter Point. Clockwise: A cob house at ALM Organic Farm, a very organic West Coast adapted garden on Carpenter Road, metal art by Jan Johnson throughout the ALM farm, musicians from the Sooke Philharmonic perform, a burl bowl made by Phoebe Dunbar at her studio on Henlyn Road, the interior of the cob house pictured above. The event was a fundraiser for the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra, a semi-professional full-size orchestra.
