As you all know, Canada will be celebrating its 150th Birthday in 2017. Thanks to Vesey's Bulbs Ltd., Canada Post, the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association, the Niagara Parks Commission, and a number of others, a program has been set up called Canada's Garden Route. The program is distributing 1,000 tulip bulbs to only 150 different locations across Canada. We (Water Valley Community Association) applied and have luckily been chosen as one of the communities to have a 150th Celebration Garden.
The idea of the campaign is to involve as many people of the community as possible with the planting this fall and with the celebration in the spring when the bulbs emerge.
Please accept this as your invitation to join your neighbours and friends in planting 500 white and 500 red tulips at the 4-way stop on Tuesday, October 4th from 4:30 till planting is done. After the planting, we will be having hot dogs, juice and goodies. This is a family event! Dress for work including gloves and gardening tools or just come for a visit.
We would love to see you all there.
You can view the list of the 150 locations or organizations which have been awarded a 150th Celebration Garden and get further information at www.canadasgardenroute.ca
Where is Water Valley?
Are we lacking in self promotion? Are we so quaint & tiny we go unnoticed? Is there a black hole we sneak into off Highway 22 North as we turn the 8 km to get to our little treasure? The answer is yes to all.
We are a well kept secret that is loved by those day trippers who know, and guarded by the few who can call it home. We get to live in a postcard and in the winter in a snow globe. Our '4-way stop' is historic, rustic, thoughtful and slow.
All these things are what we enjoy the most about it, and we promise it's what you will notice too.
Life in a small town means you know your neighbours so everyone is friendlier and more invested. Our businesses are small and run by families who believe in community in all sense of the word. We have an amazing golf course, hardware store, general store, antique & reclaimed furniture boutique, gift shop, Italian restaurant, a meadery, and adorable events church, a library, a western saloon famous for its tradition Wednesday wing nights, a rustic liquor store, a calendar of events like the Celtic-Folk Festival, Water Valley Days, Art Shows and our picturesque Water Valley Rodeo. A swimming hole with a rope swing, endless Instagram worthy hiking trails, and sunsets that can knock your socks off.
Seriously, if you have never come, it's time to get out here.
Be a tourist in your own backyard, you will be surprised what you can discover
