Description Of This Tour

How can we build, and garden, and still leave space for nature? Join local architect Chris Allen, and landscape designer Diane Ransom, as they tour two custom designed homes in Naramata that manage to weave architecture and gardens into the natural landscape. The tour will begin in the village of Naramata, at a house built in 2014 adjacent to Naramata Creek. The house divides the lot into a wild zone and food forest against the creek, and a cultivated zone which engages with the street life of the village. The group will then carpool up the hill to Smethurst Road, where a new house is being built in a secluded glade overlooking the Naramata Creek Canyon.

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
