GardeningCalendar.ca was created as a service to gardeners in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario by Jean Carr. Special thanks to Suzanne Carr, Rebecca Last, Jamie Robertson, Michel Gauthier, Kath Thompson, 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.

Thank you for the key financial support from 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 and a few Horticutural societies.

In these Covid times, the site has a significant and growing national and international following.

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

GardeningCalendar.ca is supported by its readers and advertisers. If you purchase through a link on this site, the site may earn a commission.
