Most of you have probably already heard that the August 26th event is being postponed until next year.
We look forward to making this the even better garden with the help of the City of Markham.
Below is a full note explaining the situation, hope to see you all next year! As well as our Light Up the Night walk this year in October.
Dear Friends & Family,
Unfortunately, Jenna’s dream of the children’s garden will be postponed til spring of 2013. It is sad to announce this cancellation at this time.
We have had the City of Markham involved in this project which delayed this project. The upside is that this garden is now part of a larger vision and it is the first garden dedicated to a person (Jenna) in the town of Markham, therefore the town has also donated a portion of their funds into this project. They are laying the groundwork and foundation to the garden which frees up the donations that we have received for the garden itself to be planted and bloom.
Since fall is approaching and the foundation will only be completed in September, there is no point planting in the fall. Therefore Spring is the new focus since we will be able to fulfill Jenna’s dream in time for the next summer and maintain for years to come.
I will keep you updated to the official Launch Date to be late June 2013 to celebrate Jenna’s dream fulfilled. This event will be memorable with fun activities and education to teach children and adults alike about gardening.
Stay tuned for further updates…
Thank you for your understanding.
