Canada Day 2020 in the Garden

Celebrate Canada Day in your Garden!

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live, but we will still celebrate Canada Day this year! With social distancing restrictions in place, we know that the traditional way of celebrating 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 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 garden.

Post your story or photo on Facebook or Instagram and you could win one of the following prizes by using the hashtag #GardensCanada : 

  • My Garden Colours $153 Gift Certificate: 2020 marks the 153rd Anniversary of Canada, to celebrate this special anniversary, My Garden Colours offer you a chance to win a $153 gift certificate to use on their website to purchase products for your garden; 
  • Ben and Mark Cullen 5 gifts valued at $90 each: $50 gift card to buy garden products at Home Hardware, Ben and Mark Cullen’s latest book “Escape to Reality” and 4 packets of Mark’s Choice wildflower seeds.

Get all the information on national Canada Day events and activities, including a special Canada Day virtual Celebrations Kit at the Heritage Canada website.

Enjoy Canada Day… Let’s garden together

  1. It would be silly to celebrate Canada Day in California. (Besides, I am not getting out and about like I should in the garden right now.)
