Long Description:
Just inside the entrance to the garden is this nice cedar gazebo, built in 2008 by the Silver Star Rotary Club of Vernon. While visiting the garden one may find this a quiet and inviting place for lunch as the gazebo has benches inside and benches and tables surrounding the outside.

Designed for self-guided tours, the garden has displays demonstrating the following aspects of gardening and lawn care:

Each of the above will lead one to a pdf.

From May to October during regular Polson Park hours the garden presents workshops which provide more in depth information than is available on the self guided tour. Within the garden is a Biotrench Vermiculture Composting System which was set up by Briteland, a company with many years of experience in composting.

Xerindipity was created by the Regional District of North Okanagan to provide residents of the North Okanagan and tourists with information on natural and organic methods as well as to aid them in minimizing their environmental impact.
