Back in 1936, the wisdom of The Niagara Parks Commission to create its own School of Horticulture has resulted in award-winning dividends. The school’s graduates now number more than 600 and have impacted horticulture across Canada and beyond.

This Aug. 19, 20 and 21, both the NPC School of Horticulture and Ontario Parks Association (OPA) will join for three days, to celebrate their mutual 75th milestone anniversaries. Each organization welcomes and invites the participation of their affiliates during the celebrations. Registration and all event details may be viewed online at www.ontarioparksassociation.com.

The goal is to celebrate the many successes and leadership together, along with fundraising to create a 75th Anniversary Legacy Garden. The garden is to be constructed as a tribute to the graduates of the Niagara Parks Commission School of Horticulture and to past and present members of the Ontario Parks Association.
