National Garden Days gives another reason to celebrate the benefits of gardening 

Green industry business are encouraged to organize activities or events to celebrate gardening during Garden Days, held June 13-15 this year. Garden Days is Canada’s coast to coast to coast, three-day celebration of our National Garden Day, 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, says, “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.”
