Canadian Living’s August issue, which will be on the newsstands in July, will feature Rachel’s Garden.

The garden came about through a team of volunteers from Landscape Ontario, especially the Toronto LO Chapter, designer Beth Edney, and members of the Canadian Nursery and Landscape Association, who created a $100,000 garden in just five days. The program was part of the Make a Wish Foundation. See the October 2008 Horticulture Review for complete story.

The garden features a two-tiered terrace, a bridge with shooting water, a bicycle path, a vegetable garden and numerous plants that attract butterflies. Also included in the design is a unique fence with butterfly etchings and a mural that was painted on the garage wall.

Edney noted that the magazine representatives said that a list of all the names involved in the garden will appear in the source section of the magazine.
