  “As a third generation Canadian gardener it has long been evident to me that the activity of gardening holds within it the intrinsic values of good health, wellness and a more socially elevated way of life for everyone who participates in it.

While the physical activity of gardening makes for better living, the mere presence of gardens enhances Canadian lives everywhere. Our public and private gardens have long been among the country’s great assets and now, finally, they are being celebrated in a meaningful and purposeful way during Garden Days. I am privileged to be the national spokesperson for this annual event.”

Garden Days 2014 was a resounding success.

In every province of the country, including the Yukon, public gardens, garden centres and horticultural clubs & associations held well-attended and fun activities for all ages to mark this annual celebration of gardens and gardening.

Cities from Victoria to St. John’s proclaimed Friday, June 13 as their Official Garden Day and a private member’s bill was tabled in the House of Commons to have the Friday before Father’s Day officially proclaimed Canada’s National Garden Day.

We extend hearty congratulations to Mary Moreland, of Russell Avenue in Ottawa, winner of the ‘Best Garden Street’ contest celebrating the contribution that public and/or private gardens have made to the quality of life on individual streets and neighbourhoods. Generously, Mary has opted to use the prize of $1000 worth of Mark’s Choice Lawn and Garden products from Home Hardware to further beautify her street.

Garden Days 2015 will take place on June 19, 20 & 21.

We invite you to start planning your 2015 activities now and register them at any time.
