Toronto Botanical Garden’s 28th annual tour of private gardens in Toronto takes place on Saturday, June 13 and Sunday June 14, 2015). This self-guided tour is done at the pace and interest of the participant. Complimentary shuttle buses allow garden-goers to hop on and off as they make their way around the garden route. If there are any questions, Toronto Master Gardeners are stationed in each garden to help identify unusual plants and points of interest. A printed guide and map are also provided with the purchase of your ticket and some gardens even have QRcodes to download the full plant list.

ENJOY A GASTRO-GARDEN EXPERIENCE
Enjoy eating a truly green lunch powered by the Pickle Cycle. No carbon is emitted on your lunch delivery and all packaging is 100% compostable. Think food truck, only on a bike. The Pickle Cycles are located along the route and serve salads and sandwiches.

Refuel at tour headquarters with a coffee and sweet or savory gourmet tortillas created by Chocosol. These fresh tortillas are local, sustainable and inspired by indigenous traditions.  You can also enjoy the BBQ and Poutine Station by Vert Catering (additional fees apply for food and beverage).

MarkCullen-HeadShot2010“This neighbourhood was selected for the extraordinary mature gardens that punctuate its hill-and-dale topography and for the winding roads that provide stunning views around every turn.
This is truly “where the river meets the ravine,” steps away from Yonge Street and the urban core of North York. Hogg’s Hollow shows once more that Toronto is a city of gardens.”
MARK CULLEN, 2014 HONORARY CHAIR
Unquestionably the crème de la crème of garden tours—classy, elegant, well organized and full of useful information about plants worth growing.”
SONIA DAY, TORONTO STAR COLUMNIST
