JOIN THE CANADIAN GARDEN CELEBRATION


Garden Days is Canada’s fun-filled coast to coast to coast, three-day celebration of our National Garden Day which is held annually on the Friday before Father’s Day.  This year’s dates are June 17, 18 & 19.

The Garden Days program of activities and events is an opportunity for all Canadians to get outside to enjoy their own garden, visit or take part in their favourite garden experience, get inspired at their local garden centre or travel to a nearby destination to enjoy their favourite public garden.

Let’s get dirty, Canada!
Frankie Flowers, national Garden Days spokesperson, says, “From growing your own food to cutting a fresh flower bouquet to improving a private or community space –  gardening is the best way to be active and studies prove it makes you feel better too.  So, let’s get dirty, Canada!  While the physical activity of gardening makes for better living, the mere presence of gardens enhances Canadian lives everywhere.  Our public and private gardens are among the country’s great assets and now, finally, they are being celebrated in a meaningful and purposeful way duringGarden Days.”
