Live the Garden Life

Live the Garden Life

An invitation to make a difference.

Canada was the first country in the world to recognize – by a unanimous consent motion in the House of Commons – a Year of the Garden to celebrate Canada’s rich horticultural heritage and vibrant garden culture today.

Live the Garden Life, a legacy of the Year of the Garden 2022, is a public education campaign developed by Gardens Canada and its stakeholders to celebrate Canada’s garden culture and nurture the future.
