Written by Canadian Garden Council
June 1, 2017, Toronto – Garden Days is Canada’s fun-filled celebration of our National Garden Day, Friday, June 16th, held annually on the Friday before Father’s Day.



In response to popular demand, Garden Days has grown from a three-day, to a ten-day event. This year’s dates are June 9 to 18, inclusive.



The Garden Days program of activities and events is an opportunity for all Canadians to get outside 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 public garden. 

The 2017 launch of Garden Days will take place on Friday, June 9th at the Global Centre for Pluralism’s new garden in Ottawa. This event will also be the opening day of Ottawa/Gatineau’s newest garden attraction – The Garden Promenade – connecting and collectively promoting 40 gardens and over 70 different garden experiences, the Global Centre for Pluralism’s new garden being one of them.



There are hundreds of fun activities planned from one end of the country to the other all celebrating the role of gardens in our communities and our lives. To find an activity near you, visit http://gardendays.ca/
