We’re a group of over 35 gardeners in the Toronto community of Long Branch and we’re really excited because on Saturday June 23, we’ll be putting on one of the biggest free garden tours our city has seen. Planning is well under way, but there’s still plenty of room for more gardens.
Who can participate? If you’re a gardener in Long Branch and you want to show off your green thumb, we’d love for you to join us. Participation is free, but to get on the map, you have to let us know by April 20.
The Long Branch by the Lake Garden Tour will be a family event. There will be lots of gardens to explore around our community but there’s more… We’ll have two speakers – expert gardeners Jennifer Arnott and Helen Battersby – a kids’ planting event, and even a scavenger hunt.
How will I find the gardens? Thanks to the generous support of our Long Branch BIA, we’re printing tour maps which will be available at Long Branch businesses starting in May. Just come to Lakeshore Blvd in Long Branch and stop by a participating business to pick up your free map. All participating businesses will have a poster in the window.
Never visited Long Branch? Our lakefront community is tucked into the SW corner of Toronto, between two of Toronto’s great parks, Colonel Sam Smith Park and Marie Curtis Park, on both sides of Lakeshore Blvd. Come explore our community and enjoy some fantastic gardens. We have some great lunch spots in Long Branch as well, to enjoy between garden visits.
