UXBRIDGE: The Uxbridge Historical Centre is the recipient of one of 150 ‘150th Celebration Gardens’ being distributed across Canada, by the Canada Garden Council, in collaboration with Vesey’s Bulbs of PEI, in celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial in 2017.
Staff at the Historical Centre are thrilled to have received one of these Gardens, as we understand the Canada Garden Council, the organization behind the 150th Celebration Garden program, 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 on Saturday, October 15th, from 10a.m. to 12 noon, on the grounds of Uxbridge Historical Centre, in a new garden bed. More details about this event will be announced shortly.
Everyone, from seniors to school children and the public, is invited to attend the planting ceremony and take part in the planting, as the Uxbridge community makes preparations to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday next year.
Uxbridge Historical Centre staff and garden volunteers would like to thank the organizations that made this possible: the Canadian Garden Council, Vesey’s Bulbs, Canada Post, the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association, the Niagara Parks Commission, GardenMaking magazine, Landscape Ontario, the Ontario Garden Council, Baxter Travel Media, Enterprise Canada, Gardens BC, the Quebec Gardens’ Association and VIA Rail Canada.
