In The Garden We Grow!
August 26th-27th, 2022
We are pleased to announce the 75th Anniversary Celebration of the Alumni Association. We have come a long way and it’s time to celebrate all that we have accomplished as students, graduates, and alumni. Along with the 75th anniversary comes the exciting ground breaking of a new garden project. Alumni, Students, and the Niagara Parks Commission have been busy creating a plan for a new garden space that focuses on recognizing people who have made significant contributions to the school, gardens, and alumni alike. The Recognition Garden plans will be reviewed along with a call for donations to make the project happen. Please consider making a donation to the Recognition Garden fund [Donate Now] or reach out to Art Coles if you would like to discuss funding options further [firstname.lastname@example.org]
The 75th Celebration is a time to celebrate, reflect, and of course socialize with others who like you pulled weeds, made friends, and enjoyed the gardens during the years spent at the School of Horticulture and Botanical Gardens. It’s amazing to think of the changes that have occurred on the grounds and to the school program. One thing that has not changed and will surely not change in the future is the impact we all have on the gardens as students and afterwards as alumni. The Alumni Association and Foundation have a special relationship with the school and the grounds. This is something we hope to represent with the 75th Anniversary Celebration and Recognition Garden.
