Stop and smell the roses – and other flowers and greenery – in St. Catharines this summer and celebrate the Year of the Garden with the STC in Bloom garden tour.
The free self-guided tour, available through the Goosechase app, features residential gardens alongside City of St. Catharines plantings ranging from lush ornamental gardens to environmentally-friendly pollinator gardens. Each garden is accompanied by a description within the app to help visitors learn more about each stop along the way.
To join the tour, download the Goosechase app and search STC in Bloom. Add to the fun by completing challenges by submitting a photo of the gardens you visit along the route. There is no cost to participate in the tour. People can complete it at their own pace and do as many of the challenges as they like.
The Year of the Garden is being celebrated across Canada in 2022, with the goal of educating the public about the positive impact gardening can have on communities.
