    Our inaugural Art and Garden Festival on Saturday, July 30 and Sunday, July 31, was a success!  41 participants attended, with a number from Whistler and other areas. Five gardens, art studios and farm venues were toured in Pemberton on Saturday and four in Birken on Sunday.  [PHOTOS BY CHRISTINE TIMM]



    The venues were beautiful and the program offered diverse experiences. A fashion show of items from One Earth Collection was a big hit. PACC has achieved our goal of raising awareness of the wealth of talented local artists we have and that PACC is working hard to offer experiences for our community to enjoy and appreciate the rich local art and culture. We thank our volunteer event organizers, Anne Crowley, Judy Bourhis and Gretchen Frith, and our sponsors, Rona and Pemberton Nurseries, who donated $400 to produce the event passports; and Pemberton Valley Supermarket, who sponsored lunch items.
