  “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 17 to 19, 2016

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.

Register Your Activity

All Canadian gardens, garden centres, horticultural and plant societies, garden clubs and garden-related businesses are invited to organize Garden Days activities or events to celebrate public gardens and home gardening.

We invite you to start planning your 2016 Garden Days activity and register it, at no charge, by clicking on the ‘Register your Activity’ button at the top of the page and follow the simple prompts.

Garden Days is supported by a vibrant social media and public relations campaign. The program’s objective is to draw attention to our cultural garden landscape, 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 in our communities and in our lives – we invite you to be part of this exciting national event.
