2021 Open Gardens Season
Private Open Garden visits for 2021 are being offered as online video tours.
Based on feedback from our 2020 program, for 2021 we are planning to feature two gardens each month, but in more depth. The plan is to be able to share a video that is 15 to 20 minutes in length, featuring the garden and the host.
If you would like us to contact you about having your garden showcased in a virtual tour, please complete the Submit an Open Garden form. A volunteer Open Gardens coordinator will contact you. If you have questions, contact us.
In the past, the Open Gardens tours have been one of the Society’s most popular events, with each garden receiving over 100 guests. Unlike our in-person tours, in which a garden is open for just an afternoon, once a video is released it will be available for viewing for the Open Gardens season.
We appreciate all submissions but will only be able to record eight private gardens during the 2021 gardening season. However, next year, if distancing restrictions are eased, we will invite gardeners who have submitted online to open their gardens for in-person visits.
Please note that the gardens to be featured in videos for the south side of Calgary have been identified. We are still welcoming submissions for the north side of the city.
