With close to 300 outstanding Activities registered on the site – from wacky to educational, fun to environmentally sustainable – they certainly provided loads of fun and interest for the garden and gardening loving public of all ages.
This year’s activities ran the gamut from garden tours to private backyard events, school programs, how-to demonstrations, exceptional examples of volunteerism, a world debut of a flower-related fine art exhibit, flower and garden festivals, garden centre events, proclamations of ‘Garden Day’ in cities and towns across the country, a garden gnome hunt, horticultural society and garden club events and just about everything in between.
The Canadian Garden Council and the tens of thousands of people who participated in your events and activities congratulate you on your creativity and engagement with Garden Days 2017.
The Garden Council would like to extend an extra special ‘Thank you’ to our supporters and sponsors, the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association and the Agri-Marketing Growing Forward program, with a special shout out to our outstanding national and provincial spokespeople without whom Garden Days 2017 would not have been the success it was.

Garden Days, a program of the Canadian Garden Council, is a joyful, country-wide celebration of the role of gardens in our communities and in our lives. The program’s objective is to draw attention to Canada’s 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.
We invite you to be part of this exciting national event!
