This year has been named the year of the garden by the federal government, and Kingsville is planning a free community event on Sunday, May 1st, 2022, to celebrate.

Organized by the Town’s Communities in Bloom Committee, this family-friendly event honours our rich natural heritage, promotes environmental stewardship, and highlights our shared love of gardening.

“Kingsville is so fortunate. As Canada’s most southern town, we enjoy a mild climate perfect for gardening. Our citizens are very enviro-conscious”, explained Councillor Thomas Neufeld, Chair of Kingsville’s Communities in Bloom Committee. “We wanted to celebrate these attributes with a day of fun and learning along with themes of gardening, love of nature, and care for the environment that will appeal to the whole family.”

Starting at 10am in Lakeside Park’s Pavilion, exhibitors and vendors will offer hands-on craft workshops using natural and recycled materials. Workshops continue throughout the day, and the 2nd Kingsville Scouts are providing refreshments and a barbeque. There will also be a series of short presentations on diverse topics, such as forest bathing, soil enhancement techniques, how to grow your own microgreens, and the trees of Lakeside Park.

A guided nature walk to identify the trees within the park will follow, and the Arts Society of Kingsville (ASK) has organized a Plein Air Painting demonstration by local artists.

The event is free to attend. See other upcoming initiatives of the Communities in Bloom Committee at www.kingsville.ca/cib.
