  “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.”

Canada's Celebration of Gardens
June 17 to 19, 2016

Garden Days is Canada’s 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 three-day program of activities and events is for gardening enthusiasts, families, schools and tourists alike. Garden Days is an opportunity for Canadians 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 garden.

Garden Days is supported by a vibrant social media and public relations campaign. The program’s objective is to draw attention to our cultural garden landscape, history and innovations and to underscore the importance of public and private gardens, the values of home gardening and the promotion of environmental stewardship.

Garden Days is a joyful, country-wide celebration of the role of gardens in our communities and in our lives – we invite you to be part of this exciting national event.
