The Gwynne Vaughan Plant Sale and Garden Party last year featured the very best conditions. (Progress file)

Gwynne Vaughan Plant Sale a perennial favourite

Annual sale and garden event includes strawberry tea, sales and live music June 1

About 20 intrepid gardeners braved the rain Saturday morning to tidy up Gwynne Vaughan Park in preparation for the June 1 plant sale. It’s the 23rd event for the group, and there will be more than 30 booths, including with many new vendors and many perennial favourites.

There will be live music all day, Shandhar Hut will be there, and so will the local PEO, along with a traditional strawberry tea served in fine china.

Admission and parking is free, and the event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All proceeds go towards maintaining and improving the Gwynne Vaughan Park. The event runs rain or shine.

Gwynne Vaughan Park is located in the City of Chilliwack, and consists of 6.8 acres of gardens, lawns, a field and a heritage orchard, all surrounding a heritage house built in 1896. The park also provides 30 community garden plots which are allocated on an annual basis.

The park can be found on Fairfield Island, at Hope River Road and Williams Road. For more information, visit www.gwynnevaughanpark.ca.
