Gar­den Days June 16 to June 24

Ontario Gardener Magazine - - LOCAL DIRT -

Gar­den Days is a rel­a­tively new event that takes place in June across Canada. Even in the coolest zones (ex­cept for the arc­tic), mid to late June is the beauty time. Gar­dens are flush and fresh, an ideal time to get in­volved in a gar­den so­cial event in your neigh­bour­hood.

This cel­e­bra­tion is spon­sored by the Gar­den Coun­cil of Canada. The Coun­cil man­ages: Canada’s Gar­den Route, Gar­den Days, Gar­den Tourism Con­fer­ence and Gar­den Tourism Awards.

In On­tario, the spokesper­son for this event is Sean James a de­sign con­sul­tant who spe­cial­izes in sus­tain­able land­scap­ing. The On­tario Board mem­ber is Harry Jonger­den, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Toronto Botan­i­cal Gar­den. If you or your lo­cal gar­den club would like to get in­volved, con­tact Michael Gau­thier at di­rec­tor@gar­den­coun­cil.ca
