Milner Gardens and Woodland invites groups to ‘Live the Garden Life’

Milner Gardens and Woodland is building a webpage in conjunction with the Year of the Garden 2022 that will involve the gardening community groups in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area.

“The goal of the page is to support and encourage our community to become active gardeners and be involved in the gardening community,” said Geoff Ball, the director of Milner Gardens. “We have labelled it ‘Live the Garden Life,’ which is a theme of The Year of the Garden.”

The webpage is designed to feature local gardeners, highlights gardening events and locations to check out, as well as serve as resources to help people gain gardening skills and knowledge.

The Year of the Garden is set to launch on March 20, the first day of spring. It is a Centennial Celebration of Canada’s horticulture sector from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 to commemorate Canada’s rich garden heritage, celebrate today’s vibrant garden culture, and create important legacies for a sustainable future.

Members of Canada’s garden family, including growers, retailers, garden centres, designers, landscapers, public gardens, and horticulturists are being invited to take part. Ball said they are also working with the Parksville Qualicum Beach Tourism Association, which is looking at a social media challenge to post your favourite garden spot in the area that is publicly accessible.

The City of Parksville and the Town of Qualicum Beach have both endorsed the declaration of 2022 as the Year of the Garden.

Qualicum Beach council on Feb. 2 voted to allocate $10,000 for the Year of the Garden celebration.
