Cabbagetown Garden Tour 2016 to be held June 5th

The Cabbagetown Preservation Association Annual Cabbagetown Garden Tour will be held Sunday, June 5th, 2016 from 10 am – 3 pm. Tickets are $15.00.

Expert Gardeners: Marjorie Harris and six Toronto Master Gardeners

Our Hidden Gardens & Private Spaces tour in Cabbagetown is celebrating its TENTH ANNIVERSARY on Sunday June 5, 2016. This tour has continued to draw people from all across the GTA and beyond. The attraction for many is not only the unique and charming gardens found here but also the historic streets, charming laneways, and Victorian architecture, from modest to grand.

Gardeners often say “A garden is never finished.” Ten years later, some of the gardens from our first year will be back to demonstrate how they have evolved. In addition, there will be many new hidden gardens you would otherwise never see.

Another feature of this year’s tour includes the ever popular and dramatic 6,000 square foot private roof garden atop the Hugh Garner Co-op on Ontario Street. For those who haven’t seen it, this is not to be missed. For those who have, you’ll want to show it to your friends. The award-winning project designed by architect Monica Kuhn not only provides panoramic views of the city in all directions, but also is a magical oasis with mature plantings, walkways, picnic areas and places for quiet contemplation.

The Cabbagetown Preservation Association, a not-for-profit association of volunteers, works diligently to support Cabbagetown’s architectural integrity and historic awareness. This event supports these efforts.

The Cabbagetown Preservation Association information booth will be located at 89 Winchester Street on the day of the tour.

Visit the booth to get more information on the tour or on CPA activities such as the Cabbagetown People Program, the Streetscapes in Bloom Award, the Peggy Kurtin Award Program or to buy tea towels, t-chirts, posters, other CPA merchandise or renew your CPA membership.
The ticket is a booklet that provides you with a description of the gardena as well as information on how to access them. It includes a map and also contains special offers from local businesses.
