Help Us Build Canadensis - The Garden of Canada

Contribute to building a legacy botanical garden for Ottawa and Canada, benefiting our generation and future generations.

Canadensis  – The Garden of Canada

We are the Canadensis Botanical Garden Society (CBGS) that will establish Canadensis – The Garden of Canada. The garden will be located on 34 acres of land on the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa, adjacent to the Hartwells Lockstation on the historic Rideau Canal and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The location is stunning.

    In a few words...

    The Canadensis Botanical Garden Society will be building “Canadensis: The Garden of Canada” as a legacy project for all Canadians within the historic Central Experimental Farm hub and adjacent to the UNESCO World Heritage Rideau Canal.

    Botany matters. In today’s world, where environmental systems are increasingly interdependent, living plants are literally the “lungs” of the planet. Canadensis: The Garden of Canada will offer a unique place to celebrate our great natural heritage and demonstrate our ongoing commitment to sustainability in the context of climate change.

    Ottawa today is the only G20 capital that has no botanical garden to display, interpret and promote Canada’s botanical diversity and beauty, as well as Canada’s vast horticultural, agricultural and arboricultural knowledge and expertise.
