During Garden Days which includes Father’s Day weekend (June 16 & 17), are you:

  • holding special garden- or gardening-related events in celebration of Father’s Day?
  • a garden with all sorts of programming scheduled between June 16 and 24?
  • a BIA that’s decking out main street with colourful planters and hanging baskets, and wants to host a community celebration?
  • a winery that’s pairing your terrific wines with food from your own gardens?
  • a library hosting a talk and book signing by an author of a gardening book?
  • a school that has a gardening program nurturing the next generation of gardeners?
  • a garden centre holding seminars or sales for loyal customers?
  • a horticulture society or garden club that has a tour or event taking place during Garden Days?
  • hosting a private backyard party in celebration of Garden Days?

Each and every one of those activities, and more, can be registered on the Garden Days website. It’ll only take five minutes of your time, and best of all, it won’t cost you a thing!

 

Helpful hints

  1. If you’re holding more than one event or activity – e.g. a series of how-to seminars at a garden centre, or a series of events throughout the day at your garden or festival – register each activity separately. It’ll give you more prominence on the site and give site visitors an at-a-glance view of what’s on offer, especially if they’re looking for things to do on a certain date.
  2. Need activity inspiration? Visit the Garden Days archives to see what others have done in previous years.
  3. Please only submit activities and events that are taking place during Garden Days, the dates of which are June 16 to 24, inclusive.

 

Your City’s Official Garden Day

Wouldn’t it be great if your city or town declared its own official Garden Day? It could be June 16, National Garden Day, or any other day between June 16 and 24. We’ve made the process super easy. All you need to do is check out this page on the Garden Days website. When you have your Mayor-signed Garden Days proclamation, register it as your city’s official garden activity.
