The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live, but we will still be celebrating Canada Day this year! With social distancing restrictions in place, we know that the traditional way of commemorating our country’s birthday must be different.
This year, we propose celebrating Canada Day in the garden!
The Canadian Garden Council, in collaboration with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association and Canadian Society of Landscape Architects, invites you to celebrate Canada Day in your backyard garden, at a public garden, or in a park. While respecting the COVID-19 guidelines in your municipality, your family’s Canada Day celebrations can be held in your favorite garden.
