Event Information

Title: Mark Cullen – The New Canadian Garden
Venue: Academy Theatre for Performing Arts
 



Horticultural expert Mark Cullen comes to share his insights to help City of Kawartha Lakes residents solve their gardening problems, and to plan their garden layout to achieve the desired look. Mark delivers a message that is compelling, fun, informative, inspirational – all based on his sustainable approach to gardening.

A well-known personality on this subject, Mark is spokesperson for both the SHARE Agriculture Foundation and Canada Blooms Flower and Garden Festival, and is the founding Chair of the Highway of Heroes Living Tribute (with the goal of planting 117,000 trees along that stretch of Hwy 401). He is also spokesperson and horticulture consultant to Home Hardware Canada, and spokesperson for Premiertech Home and Garden (Golf Green Iron Plus). Each weekend Mark has a gardening feature column in the Toronto Star.

Last summer, Mark was named Member of the Order of Canada “For his contributions to promoting and developing horticulture education in Canada and for his ability to explain how Canadians can protect the environment.”

Mark is also the author of over 20 books, and writes regularly for Harrowsmith Canadian Almanac and Harrowsmith Garden Digest, and is garden-editor of both Active Life Magazine and Reno and Décor Magazine.
