Garden Friendly


Invitation to be a Garden-Friendly Municipality

With 82% of Canadians living in municipalities, the goal is to encourage municipalities to support the celebration and development of their garden culture.

Garden-Friendly Municipalities acknowledge how garden culture contributes to the quality of life in their communities, the health of their citizens, and the positive environmental impact made by gardens: the lungs of our cities.

Garden Friendly Municipality

Get Your Municipality on board to Live the Garden Life!

Gardens bring beauty, culture, quality of life and biodiversity into our communities, which is why they are so important to municipalities across the country. That is why, in partnership with Communities in Bloom and Fleurons du Québec, the Canadian Garden Council invites municipalities to engage and commit to be a Garden-Friendly Municipality.

Check if your municipality proclaimed 2022 Year of the Garden and engaged to be a Garden-Friendly and, if not, here is a link to an invitation, a engagement template and a presentation on Garden-Friendly Municipality. Send this to your councilors and the mayor with an email explaining why you feel your municipality should engage to be a Garden-Friendly Municipality and celebrate our National Garden Day.

These Canadian Municipalities have Proclaimed 2022 as the Year of the Garden:
Year of the Garden: Municipalities that do not Proclaim, but are holding special ceremonies
British Columbia
Prince Edward Island
