The weather has been wet, windy and cold over the past few months, and has left us all impatient for Spring and our gardens. The Sooke Secret Garden Tour committee has also been impatient; to begin the planning for our annual tour to fundraise for the Sooke Philharmonic Society.
The major planning decision this year has been whether to have a live or virtual tour. Like many other local event organizers, we have been closely following COVID updates and changes in regulations from the Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry.
Due to the uncertainty of the pandemic situation, the Committee has now decided to proceed with plans for a virtual garden tour in June, 2021.
The Committee has some wonderful ideas to enhance your enjoyment of our virtual garden tour, which will showcase several local gardens and music by members of the Sooke Philharmonic. Over the next while, we will be updating the public on the details of our 21st Annual Sooke Secret Garden Tour through our various forms of social media.
We look forward to presenting to everyone a new and exciting format for the Tour – keep watching for those updates!
