Saturday, September 23, 2023, organizers of the Canadensis Garden Fall Celebration bring together fun activities and creative people for interactive fun and unique learning experiences. All events take place at Canadensis Garden which occupies a 34-acre parcel of land at the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa and where plans are developing to build a national botanical garden of international appeal in the heart of the nation’s capital. “Canadensis will be a beautiful and diverse botanic garden.” says Canadensis Chair, Gérald Lajeunesse.

“Our Fall Celebration not only provides visitors of all ages with educational, interactive and enjoyable experiences, we’re promoting a deeper understanding of our intimate interdependence with nature, showcasing the positive impact of gardens and gardening on our environment and wellbeing and inspiring others to join and support our movement to build a national botanical garden in Ottawa” he adds.
