Calling all Mississauga green thumbs

June 25, 2017 by  

Two of Mississauga’s garden clubs will be coming together this summer to bring an event to the community that will showcase its growing horticultural side.

The Mississauga Garden Festival will be made up of two different events that have been chosen to complement one another. The first portion of the day will involve a tour of local private gardens, and 10 properties will be included on the day’s route. They have been selected to demonstrate the beauty and benefits of different gardening styles, and they are all within distance of Rattray Marsh.

The Garden Festival, which will take place rain or shine, will be held in Bradley Museum. Guests will be able to sit in on a variety of talks, and there will also be food available for purchase, tours of the institution’s gardens, and a special area for vendors of horticultural products. A local printer can be called upon when planning functions such as these to use wide format printing to produce maps of the tour, as well as promotional posters, banners and a wide assortment of other items.

Both of these green thumb friendly activities will take place on July 9. Those who register to participate can pick up their map at the Bradley Museum on the day of the function, and more details can be found on its Twitter page.
