The Garden Show Receives Two Prestigious Awards


Gardens and garden experiences are cultural treasures that have intrinsic value in our communities. They define our quality of life and are spaces that support communities. They are strong economic engines that incite and share passion because - Nature connects us. We care where our food comes from which encourages us to grow our own and share it with others. We care how our neighbourhoods look which encourages us to create beautiful gardens, sharing that beauty with others. Gardeners pursue exploration, education and excellence in creating magic in both public and private spaces and spread that passion.

As Henry Ford said:

“ Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success”.

This is what gardeners do in their own gardens and within the garden experiences they share with others.

The Peterborough Garden Show is one of those magical places that local gardeners generously share with others. Organized and run by volunteers from The Peterborough Horticultural Society in collaboration with the Peterborough Master Gardeners, it showcases 150 vendors, professional speakers and displays to tempt, educate and incite passion.

It is for these reasons, this show has been honoured with two prestigious awards at the 2017 International Garden Tourism Conference in March.

Garden Event of the Year and,

one of 150 Garden Experience Designations in Canada.
