The Gardens in Bloom 2019 tour is an important CVHS fundraiser with proceeds returned to the community in support of various gardening endeavours and projects. Since its inception in 2008, we’ve provided grants in excess of $26,000 to 37 non-profit organizations and schools for the development or enhancement of horticultural activities and gardening projects.

Previous recipients have been Friendship Garden Fun (Courtenay Elementary School), Seed to Plate (Ecole Robb), Let’s Grow! Comox Community Garden, Serenity Garden (Stepping Stones Recovery House), Lake Trail Community Education Society, Glacier View Lodge and The Gardens on Anderton to name just a few.
