The inaugural Garden Centres Canada Summit, held in July, was a huge success with a bus load of retail participants from six provinces. This two-day event included tours of four unique garden centres and informative talks from four inspirational and thought-provoking speakers.

Together, this combination provided participants with an opportunity to mingle with like-minded individuals, take time to process their own relevance and reflect on the value of their garden centre. It is this type of event that allows for brain storming, sharing, problem solving, and inspiration. Next year the Garden Centre Canada (GCC) committee is looking at Vancouver, B.C., Saskatoon, Sask., or Edmonton, Alta., to hold host the event. Keep an eye on your provincial association website or the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) website for updates and an official announcement.

Landscape Ontario was a partner of the event.
