Through the Garden Gate, one of Canada’s largest private garden tours, will celebrate its 30th year by showcasing 30 of Toronto’s most beautiful gardens in North Rosedale & Moore Park. This self-guided tour enables participants to discover the gardens at their own pace following a map and garden guide containing descriptions of the featured gardens. A complimentary shuttle bus service is available for participants along the garden route. Knowledgeable Toronto Master Gardeners will be at each garden to answer any questions about the plant materials and design features. There will be opportunities to buy snacks and refreshments along the route with our partners Augie’s Gourmet Ice Pops, Organic Chef Foods, Summerhill Market and Vert Catering Pickle Cycle. All proceeds from this event support the Toronto Botanical Garden.
