Everyone is welcome to join CRAGS and BGSS at this informal event to celebrate Year of the Garden in Canada.   CRAGS and the Botanical Gardens of Silver Springs collaborated on the building of an Alpine Crevice Garden and Native Plants Garden, starting in 2016. Here is the BGSS invitation:

The year of the Garden in Canada:  this proclamation is a first for Canada and the Botanical Gardens of Silver Springs is very committed to participating with multiple activities through the spring, summer, and fall.  In honor of this celebration the Year of the Garden Committee is asking you to plant ‘Red” this year.  Think of all the possibilities between the red blooms, red leaves and red produce like apples, tomatoes etc.

Please come and join us as we partner with various specialty gardeners to highlight and display our gardens.  On May 14 we will be partnering with the Calgary Rock and Alpine Gardens Association.  They will be providing a learning session at the Alpine, Crevice and Native Plant Garden in the Northeast corner of the park.  It will occur from 10 am until 2 pm and will have experts on crevice gardening in attendance
