Saturday was a lovely day for a garden party in Chilliwack

It’s always a sensory feast of sights and smells at Gwynne Vaughan Park Plant Sale and Garden Party

The Gwynne Vaughan Plant Sale and Garden Party on Saturday featured the very best conditions for an outdoor communtity event with cool temperatures and a sunny day prevailing.

Thousands attended the popular event in a park setting that went until 3 p.m. raising funds for Gwynne Vaughan Society and the Valley Permaculture Society as well.

People perused the kiosks, and admired the artwork and plants as they moseyed along the gravel path that snakes around the site. There were pots of honey, herbs, photographs, and water plants, and so much more. There were copper fountains, bird baths and hand-made soaps.

People enjoyed a cup of tea and strawberry shortcake, a hot dog, or maybe some butter chicken from Shandhar hut.

The Valley Permaculture volunteers were serving tea, coffee and baked goodies as well as selling plants and running the kids’ activities.
