Flower Music Garden

From July 18th through to mid-September, environmental artist, Ingrid Koivukangas, has created a unique Sound Garden in one of her cutting gardens at Alchemy Farm on Salt Spring Island. Ingrid will lead small groups on a tour of the garden sharing information about flowers along the way. Visitors will be able to scan a QR code, with their Smartphone, at select flowers to listen to the music of that flower. The sound recordings were created with a device that transforms the energy of plants into musical notes. Each flower has its own unique melody. Tickets must be booked here.
