You’re invited to join in the fun and “Live the Garden Life” during the Year of the Garden 2022, a celebration of everything garden and gardening related in Canada.

The Year of the Garden will publically launch on March 20, 2022, the first day of spring, and between now and then, members of Canada’s Garden-Family – from growers to garden centres and retailers, designers, landscapers, the garden experience sector from public gardens, horticultural societies and garden clubs, to garden communicators, and educators – are all invited to engage with Canada’s Year of the Garden 2022 activities.

Canadians, whether you already enjoy gardening, recently discovered the pleasure of spending time in a garden because of the pandemic, or want to learn more about how gardens impact so much of life, there’s something for everyone to commemorate our country’s rich garden heritage, and create important legacies for a sustainable future.

Discover the many ways you can celebrate today’s vibrant garden culture at home, at work, in school, in your community, and at public gardens across the country from the Planter’s Moon in the spring of 2022, to the Frost Moon in the fall.

Watch for the full Year of the Garden 2022 website launching soon!
