Our Story

We are a service to Gardeners

GardeningCalendar was initially created as a service to gardeners in Ottawa, Canada and Eastern Ontario. In these Covid times, the site has gained a significant and growing local, national and international following. New features, information and value which benefits gardeners are being added continuously, which is fuelling follower growth.

The site was originally created by Jean Carr. His wife, a member of 5 garden clubs, was spending too much time bouncing rom website to website looking for upcoming events. Jean created a website with local events to save time. Community acceptance and use of the site has always exceeded expectations.

And now, we are continually looking for ways to improve the site for the benefit of gardeners.

Kath Thompson contributes her great monthly newsletter and continual wisdom. Special thanks to Suzanne Carr, Karen Haddon, Rebecca Last, Jamie Robertson, Michel Gauthier, Rick Radko, Denise Kennedy, Dale Odorizzi, the Presidents of most Horticultural Associations and Garden Clubs in the area noting Rosemary Campbell, and many emails of support from gardeners.

Jean Carr is also on the Board of Directors of Gardens Ottawa and Vice Chair of Canadensis Botanical Garden Society.

Thank you for the key financial support from advertisers and sponsors. Richard Inchley Ponds and Aquaria, Mike Ritchie at Ritchie Feed and Seed, Elizabeth Kilvert of The Unrefined Olive, Dave Dunn of Rideau Woodland Ramble, the Montreal Botanical Garden.
