By the Canadian Garden Council

The Canadian Garden Council has proclaimed 2022 as the “Year of the Garden.”

It is an important year for the public to be inspired, entertained, and informed by Canada’s Garden Family -— the thousands of plant growers, product manufacturers, retailers, landscape service providers, horticulture societies, garden clubs and public gardens from across the nation.

“We encouraged everyone in the Garden Family, from horticulture professionals to horticulture societies and public gardens, to embrace 2022 as an opportunity to share our passion and knowledge to help more Canadians enjoy the benefits of gardens and gardening,” says Michel Gauthier, Executive Director of the Canadian Garden Council.

“We want people to ‘live the garden life’ and think about gardens indoors, on their balconies, in their yards, in schools, at work and in their communities. We want them to appreciate gardens while cooking on their barbecues, traveling on trips, and shopping in their downtowns.

“We will commemorate Canada’s rich garden heritage, celebrate today’s vibrant garden culture and create legacies for a sustainable future—and in doing so, nurture a nation of gardeners.”

The Canadian Garden Council was founded in April 2014, in collaboration with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA), in order to foster awareness and development of Canada’s garden experience sector, the Canadian Garden Council is a not-for-profit corporation with board representation from all parts of the country. Council membership reflects partnerships among all sectors of the horticulture, public garden, gardening, tourism and associated industries on a regional, provincial and territorial basis, enabling the Council to address the full range of issues facing the garden experience sector.
