Congratulations to the International Peace Gardens
The International Peace Gardens was presented with a Canada 150 Garden
Experience Award. The IPG is located on 2,339 acres straddling the Canadian/U.S. border in the Turtle Mountains and is a symbol of peace between the two nations. (Visit peacegarden.com to learn more about the IPG.) This program of the Canadian Garden Council identified 150 gardens and garden experiences from coast-to-coast they recommend that tourists visit in this, our 150th birthday year. Awards were handed out at the North American Garden Tourism Conference. To view all 150 winners, visit canadasgardenroute.ca and click on the ‘Canada 150 Garden Experience’ banner on the home page.
