Year of the Garden begins March 20

The Canadian Garden Council’s (CGC) Year of the Garden 2022 officially launches on the first day of spring, March 20, 2022. The initiative celebrates the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association’s (CNLA) 100th anniversary.

Numerous garden clubs, horticultural societies and public gardens across Canada are planning special activities to celebrate. Municipalities such as Toronto, Winnipeg, Red Deer, Halifax, Saint Andrews, and Brantford have proclaimed 2022 as their Year of the Garden.

Throughout the Year of the Garden 2022, there will be many ways to “live the garden life” and make a difference. Canadians can get involved in one of the many Year of the Garden 2022 programs, including: plant red and show your Canadian garden pride; sign up your garden as a 2022 Celebration Garden; celebrate your municipal proclamation; and celebrate your garden heroes.

The Year of the Garden 2022 will also be an exciting time to experience and celebrate why Canada is known as a nation of gardeners and gardens. Garden Days from June 11-19, including National Garden Day (June 18), will be extra special this year. Visit yearofthegarden.ca for full details.
