🌱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. And, this acknowledgment also celebrates the role gardens and gardening played for their residents during the pandemic and now during the recovery. 125 Garden Friendly Municipalities representing nearly 50% of Canada’s population proclaimed 2022 as the Year of the Garden

It is clear that public and private gardens, and the efforts by municipalities, the public, community groups, and garden organizations are a vital part of what makes Canada a beautiful and popular international tourism destination. That is why Gardens Canada became a proud Estuary Sponsor of the 2023 IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism Conference in Victoria BC. Michel Gauthier, Garden’s Canada Executive Director and Brent Gavin, Partnerships Manager are traveling to Victoria BC to connect with representatives from Canada’s tourism industry to present how “Live the Garden Life 2023” will help the tourism sector impact global change and lead the world in a new age of environmental and social responsibility.
