  “I am pleased to be national spokesperson for Garden Days – a terrific opportunity for everyone to visit their nearby public garden, stop in at their favorite garden centre and above all, get outdoors and garden! Why garden? From growing your own food to cutting a fresh bouquet of flowers or improving a community space, gardening is the best way to be active and studies prove it makes you feel better too!!

Gardening is a blooming good time – so let’s get dirty Canada!”

Canada's Celebration of Gardens
June 9 to 18, 2017

Garden Days 2016 was a GREAT success!

Thanks to each and every one of you for planning such terrific activities and to everyone that took part in them.

We’ve got all sorts of exciting plans for Garden Days 2017, the first of which is that we’re pleased to announce that starting in 2017, Garden Days will become a 10-day event. This will give activity organizers much more flexibility and organizers of events already planned for the weekend before Father’s Day the opportunity to be part of this vibrant national program.

Dates for Garden Days 2017 are June 9 to 18, inclusive. National Garden Day will be celebrated on Friday, June 16th.

We invite you to start planning your activities now and to register them on this site early in 2017.

Garden Days program’s objective is to draw attention to our garden culture, 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 and gardening in our communities and in our lives – we invite you to be part of this exciting national event.
