Fergus Garden tour harvests food, cash for local food bank

The Fergus Horticultural Society’s garden tour was a great success.

In spite of thunder and threat­ening clouds, the rain held off, and over 200 people were able to enjoy four beauti­ful gardens and the Grand River Arboretum.

This year’s tour netted 400 pounds of food and $150 for the Centre Wellington Food Bank. To see photos of the tour, visit the society’s website at www.gardenontario.org/site.php/fergushs and go to the photo gallery section.

Organizers offered their thanks to all the enthusiastic garden owners and volunteers, who made the annual event possible.
