For directions and further information, visit the website at www.alpinemtecho.com

Responding to increasing demand for such an event is becoming increasingly popular. Organizer Maria Galletti of Alpines Mont Echo in Sutton, held her first event in 2004. The enthusiasm and encouragement were overwhelming, and from the very start it was apparent it would have to be repeated. Being a small specialty grower herself, she wanted to find a way to support and promote other small growers as well as artisans and artists who make unique and beautiful objects and accessories for the garden. Similar events in Quebec, Ontario and the US are gaining in popularity as people become more and more interested in gardening and garden art and accessories.

A butterfly on a daisy...the chances to see some lovely flowers and incredible insects abound!From a small number of participants the first year, the number has increased in leaps and bounds each ensuing year with the majority being repeat exhibitors. Rain or shine, the event always draws a good crowd. Maria Galletti is launching an advertising campaign promoting the event with garden clubs in the townships and in Montreal, through articles and ads in local papers and on such local websites as DestinationKnowlton.com which helps promote events and businesses in The Eastern Townships.

The event will attract many visitors to the area, benefiting the local economy and promoting tourism. People love a good weekend outing to the townships in search of treasure and recreation. Come visit us “In the garden…” at 1182 Parmenter Road, Sutton. For directions and further information, visit the website at www.alpinemtecho.com or contact Maria Galletti (450) 243-5354.
