Get BIG on Bloor! On Saturday, July 21, and Sunday, July 22, 2012, Bloor Street West will be “car free” from Dufferin to Lansdowne Avenue. Many activities will be happening in the neighbourhood. Come celebrate local community, business, arts and culture.

Toronto Botanical Garden helps launch The Toronto Garden Project, and invites you to join in.  Simply draw a flower that is meaningful to you—one that marks a birthday, a passing, a party, a park, a mother’s day, an anniversary, a tragedy, a success–or any other occasion when we share flowers. Selected flower drawings will become part of a permanent “garden” in stainless steel, embedded in the Bloor Street sidewalk.

Celebrate flowers at the height of their season with the TBG:

  • Take in the beauty and fragrance of our What’s In Bloom bouquets
  • Taste our award-winning honey from the TBG’s bees
  • Shop for summer herbs, edible flowers or a gardening book to inspire your efforts
  • Check out the work of the city’s most industrious pollinators and take your photo with a beekeeper’s veil and smoker.
