Take part in ‘Garden Days’: June 13–15

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.

Mark Cullen, national Garden Days spokesperson, recently said, “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.” All Canadian gardens, garden and horticultural organizations and garden-related businesses (eg. garden centres) are invited to organize activities or events to celebrate public gardens and home gardening and to be included in the Garden Days program. It's as simple as visiting and clicking on the ‘Register Your Activity' button. To find Garden Days activities near you, visit and click on the ‘Activities' button, or search by city on this easy to navigate site. While on the site, be sure to enter the ‘Canada's Best Garden Street' contest. Explain how gardens, private or public, contribute to the quality of life on your street and in your neighborhood and yours could be named Canada's 2014 ‘Best Garden Street'.

Above all, have some great outdoor fun by adding more garden to your life.
