It is with a sad heart, that due to the Covid 19 virus that is affecting us all, Artists In The Garden group has cancelled upcoming events.  Our annual Plant/Book sale planned for Saturday May 23, 2020 and our annual Garden Tour planned for  Saturday June 20, 2020 are both cancelled.  Your presence at both of these events helps us to raise about $15,000.00 a year for Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre  in Oshawa. Donations are still needed at Hearth Place, and you can donate through, then press the Donate button.   We look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
