More than 130 front gardens have been nominated in the 2019 Summer Trillium Program.  This is an increase over last year and we thank you for your nominations and interest in our community's front gardens. 

Have you been nominated?  You will receive a letter if you have been nominated.  Look for it before July 1st.  You can call our chair Branka Radisic to find out - 289-235-9799. 

Judging with take place from July 4th to July 11th. 

Do you have a question about the Trillium Program?  Would you like to know the assessment criteria?  People typically ask what kinds of gardens are in scope, can the judges walk on the front garden property, what is considered the front garden, and how do judges handle different sized properties.

Dr. Deena Errampalli is a Research Scientist (plant pathology), a visual artist (painting, printmaking and photography) and a GGC member.  She has exhibited and juried, solo and group shows in Canada.  Her art work is in private collections in six countries.

Deena believes that horticulture has a place in all our lives.  Horticulture can be defined as the cultivation of a garden, orchard or a nursery.  Gardens have been a major component of artistic expression for centuries.

Deena will draw from her experiences in both science and visual arts and examine the use of gardens and horticulture as themes for their aesthetic and/or symbolic value in art and architecture.
