“From food security to climate change to mental health, gardening is there for everyone to overcome many of today’s challenges.”
The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food (from her opening message in the book)

Readers of a new coffee table book are invited to “live the garden life,” get their hands in the ground, and visit a Canadian garden. The book, entitled Gardens Canada – Live the Garden Life, was released by the Canadian Garden Council and is now available at our Friends of the Farm online boutique.

The Ornamental Gardens and Arboretum at AAFC’s Central Experimental Farm are among the approximately one hundred most popular and admired Canadian gardens presented in the book. Parks Canada historic sites are also included, as well as award-winning landscapes that illustrate garden designs, trends and innovations from coast to coast.

“This celebration of gardens across the country is a visual feast,” writes Alexander Reford, Director, Reford Gardens, in an opening message. Consisting of 160 pages, the soft-cover publication is 11.5” wide by 9” high. The price is $28.50 per copy. Proceeds from its sale will help support various Year of the Garden 2022 initiatives.
