Phase 1 – Business Plan
Work on the comprehensive Business Plan and budget began in early 2020 with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association’s support and encouragement, was interrupted by Covid-19, and is now back in full swing with completion by end of September 2020.
The Business Plan will define the Year of the Garden 2022 umbrella program approach, outline its leadership and management, financing and budget, marketing plan, and general operations.
Phase II – Development and Feasibility Analysis – October 2020 to February 2021
During this period, the Canadian Garden Council will work with members of Canada’s Garden Family, associations, and potential partners and collaborators expressing their willingness to move forward with the Year of the Garden 2022 program.
Phase III – Planning and Launch – March and December 2021
The Canadian Garden Council, working with Canada’s Garden Family, will connect with various associations and networks to engage everyone’s participation.
Federal and provincial governments as well as various organizations will also be approached and made aware to document and sanction the activities, celebrations and events that will take place during the Year of the Garden 2022. A public launch event remains to be determined.
Phase IV – Implementation of the Year of the Garden 2022 – January to December 2022
The full year implementation of this program will allow Canadians to participate or get involved in activities, events, celebrations, promotions and projects across the country.
