Welcome to Garden Days

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.

“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!”
