GARDENER'S VOICES

You do it because this is something you have to do; you need to do it.

A garden is a gift that you can give to other people, and to yourself.

A garden is a place where the human soul and the earth connect.

If I was to let go, my passion for gardening would be endless.

INTRODUCTION
NAR: In gardens throughout the city, from the small vest pocket gardens of the West End, to the large expansive riverside properties of the lush suburbs, Winnipeg gardeners enjoy another banner year of beauty. With their small miracles of nature, Winnipeg's gardeners are making the world a sweeter place one garden at a time.

An ancient Chinese proverb says:

If you would be happy for a week,
take a wife,
If you would be happy for a month,
kill your pig,
But if you would be happy for a lifetime plant a garden

IRIS KENNEDY:
GARDENER, CHARLESWOOD
Gardening is very important to my wellbeing. It gives me peace creativity and just a feeling of exhilaration when I am walking through my yard first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening.

My garden is over an acre from the front right down to the river. My favourite area of my garden is the gazebo where I have my coffee and read my paper every morning. And my second favourite would be the riverbank with my grandchildren and friends having a glass of wine and lighting a fire.

Beauty is the Mistress,
the gardener Her slave.
- Michael P. Garofalo

DEB ASKIN:
GARDENER, ST VITAL
I love gardening because it gives you a sense of peace. It gives you a sense of creativity, it's an opportunity to nurture things, help them grow. It's an opportunity to be one with nature. To meet folks, to be out in the front yard and to have people come by and ask questions about the garden is one of the greatest thrills that I have.

Sometimes it's hard to appreciate what a difference it makes to be out in the garden until you have had a difficult day. The mornings here are glorious. You can smell the dew and you really have a sense of just what kind of tropical paradise can be created here even in Winnipeg. You need to be willing to go with just what nature offers you that's what makes a good garden.

When children come to the yard to visit the first time, we take them to the herb garden and they taste different things. It's really amazing. For me gardening is really about the beginning of life it's about spring time, it's really about beginnings. It really does renew you.

All the flowers of all the tomorrows
are in the seeds of today.
- Indian Proverb

KEN HAHLWEG:
GARDENER, WOLSELEY
What I love most about gardening is the absolute feeling of bliss that a person gets when you are engaged fully. It's very difficult to extricate myself from the garden and go to work.

The two willows in the back frame the yard. The trees are amazing, they frame the house, they protect and they provide shade and shelter.

A garden takes care and it's a relationship between a person and the land. Health is not defined just as physical health its physical its emotional its spiritual as well and the garden gives to all of that and so I would think gardeners are quite healthy individuals. Love and patience are probably the 2 essential ingredients.

He who plants a garden plants happiness.
