Joan Looy, of Victorian Garden Tours, taught at and headed a Victoria Community College department for over twenty years. She then decided to follow her passion for gardening by offering garden tours featuring wonderful private gardens that were only rarely available to visiting garden enthusiasts.
Having grown up in the Victoria area, she is also eager to share local history and provide interpretive tours of lesser known historic public gardens. Take advantage of Joan's infectious enthusiasm for gardening, her thorough knowledge of gardening trends, and her extensive gardening experience. If Joan is not available to guide your tour, she will ensure another Victoria gardener, also knowledable of local history, will show Victoria's gardens to their best effect.
