Gardeners in the Applewood Acres and Orchard Heights areas have graciously agreed to open their beautiful spring gardens to ticket-holders for viewing on Sunday, May 26, 2019 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. in support of the Spring Garden Tour in support of the fight against cancer. 

Included on this year’s tour are the gardens of Liz Primeau, author of Front Yard Gardens: Growing More Than Grass and In Pursuit of Garlic: An Intimate Look at the Divinely Odorous Bulb, and Douglas Markoff, Executive Director of the Riverwood Conservancy, the 60-hectare nature preserve and public gardens on the East Bank of the Credit River. 

This year’s Tour will also include a plant sale with proceeds donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. 

To further enhance visitors’ experience, music students from Mentor College will be performing in selected gardens throughout the day and a Master Gardener will be on hand to answer gardening questions.

Last year’s Tour raised over eight thousand dollars and they are  hoping to beat that amount for this year.

All proceeds will go to the Canadian Cancer Society to help fight cancer.

Tickets will be available for sale online at www.ccsgardentour.com and at select retailers in Mississauga.
