City of Toronto Councillor Sarah Doucette (Ward 13 Parkdale-High Park), member of the Parks and Environment Committee, helped celebrate the beautiful gardens in Toronto by recognizing the winners of the 2015 Toronto Garden Awards at City Hall on October 14.

The awards are intended to showcase and recognize some of Toronto's outstanding gardens and the gardeners who have spent countless hours, energy and passion to ensure that Toronto's non-public green spaces grow and flourish.

"Much of the green space in our city is comprised of people’s front and back yards and while some people view these spaces as areas that need to be mowed once a week, others see them as vibrant and livable natural spaces that should be nurtured," said Councillor Doucette in a press release.

Finalists, which included residential and non-residential properties, were selected from winners of last year's local community garden contests. The judges considered the use of landscape, the condition and maintenance of the garden, the use of plant material, colour and texture, and the garden's overall appeal.

70 High Park Avenue was a First Place winner in the High Density category. Congratulations to our garden club members, John, Lorrie and Evelyn for their hard work and dedication in creating an award winning green space.
