The Rotary Club of Windsor-St.Clair is the lucky recipient of one of 150th Celebration Gardens being distributed across Canada by the Canadian Garden Council in collaboration with Vesey’s Bulbs of PEI, in celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial in 2017

Containing 1000 tulip bulbs, the international symbol of friendship and an enduring symbol of our national ethos of kindness and hospitality, the 150th Celebration Garden is a wonderful way to say “Happy Birthday Canada”.

Everyone from seniors to school children and the public is invited to attend the planting ceremony as our community makes preparations to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday next year. Public planting is to take place on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 2:00 at the roundabout at Manning Road and Riverside Drive, around the large Rotary logo.

“We feel very fortunate”, said Anna Jurak, President-Elect of the Rotary Club of Windsor-St.Clair to have received one of these Gardens, as we understand that the Canadian Garden Council, the organization behind the 150th Celebration Garden received more than 400 applications. The garden, consisting of 500 red and 500 white tulip bulbs, generously donated by Vesey’s Bulbs of PEI, will be planted by Rotarians and volunteers of all ages.

Hosting this “150th Celebration Garden” would allow our Club to invite the public to celebrate not only Canada’s 150th birthday but also to share our vision of environmental issues and how we are working to address them in the community. Sharing this garden promotes environmental stewardship and underscores the importance of public gardens.

Our garden and the other 149 gardens planted across the country will be symbolically linked to a Flagship 150th Celebration Garden Promenade, consisting of 25,000 tulips, also donated by Vesey’s, to bloom next spring adjacent to Niagara Falls, one of the greatest natural wonders of the world and one of Canada’s largest gateways to visitors in our country.

Our garden will be featured on Canada’s Garden route.

The Rotary Club of Windsor-St.Clair would like to thank all those that made this heart warming program possible: Canadian Garden Council, Vesey’s Bulbs, Canada Post, Canadian Nursery Landscape Association, Niagara Parks Commission, Garden Making magazine, Landscape Ontario, Ontario Garden Council, Baxter Travel Media, Enterprise Canada, Gardens BC, Quebec Gardens’ Association and Via Rail Canada.
