SpindleTree Gardens in Tamworth was jury-selected as one of 150 gardens and garden experiences across the country to receive the ‘Canada 150 Garden Experience’ designation. Presented by the Canadian Garden Council, promotes SpindleTree Gardens as one of 150 garden ways to celebrate Canada’s birthday year.
Gardens define our Canadian aesthetic
At the awards ceremony held in March at the North American Garden Tourism Conference in Toronto, Alexander Reford, President of the Canadian Garden Council said, “Canada has a long-standing garden culture. From First Nations gardens that were here long before settlers arrived, to the enormous variety of gardens that every culture has brought to this country since Confederation, gardens – from modest kitchen and community gardens to celebrated botanical and public gardens – have played a role in defining and developing our Canadian aesthetic and quality of life.”
Owners of SpindleTree Gardens, Susan Meisner and Tom Brown are thrilled with the selection. "As the 2017 garden-visiting season commences, we at SpindleTree Gardens can’t think of a better honour with which to celebrate the birthday of Our Home and Native Land than being named a ‘Canada 150 Garden Experience’".
