Abkhazi Garden, the heritage home and garden created by the late Prince Nicholas and Princess Peggy Abkhazi, is a plant-enthusiast’s dream tucked within Garry oaks and rocky outcrops. But as with any heritage site, the Garden requires ongoing care to keep it open to the public. It truly takes a village!
TLC and Abkhazi Garden volunteers have been working to refurbish sections of the garden in need of restoration. Projects include replacing sections of fence surrounding the Garden, painting building exteriors and launching stonework projects to repair or replace ground coverings that date back to the original creation of the Garden.
Upcoming stonework projects include the steps of the summerhouse, staircases and the remainder of the terraced main patio. Watch out for updates on our restoration progress or stop by the Garden to get a glimpse of the action; Abkhazi Garden and Teahouse are open Wednesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout the winter.
To support Abkhazi Garden’s restoration projects you can donate online today or send your gift via Canada Post to PO Box 50054 Fairfield Plaza, Victoria, BC V8S 5L8.
TLC Members and donors have raised $3,860 towards the goal of matching a $20,000 grant from the Dalglish Family Foundation by April 1, 2017. With your continued support we can raise our goal and complete the necessary improvements to see this site continue for generations to come.
TLC wishes to thank CBS Masonry for their expert craftsmanship and care of this beloved site.
