Garden Centres Canada and COVID-19

From the committee.

Our GCC members and volunteers have been busy sharing ideas, suggestions, and advocating to keep retail garden centres open.

This is a time of isolation and collaboration. Our GCC members and volunteers have been busy sharing ideas, suggestions, and advocating to keep retail garden centres open. The camaraderie and amount of sharing is heartwarming. We are together and we will get through this. We ask that you keep a keen eye on your Provincial Association’s website COVID response tabs, this is the best source in understanding what is going on for our sector. Each province is very different in their essential service list some are black and white others are left open for interpretation.

Download Garden Centre Canada - Member suggestions to guide you during COVID-19. This information is a collaboration from different countries, associations and provinces. Thank you to all these groups for assisting and sharing to make this happen.

Garden Centre owners and operators are asking for a conduit for sharing ideas and asking questions. We would like to encourage you to please join this closed FB group to start and join the conversation. I cannot emphasis enough the positive power of information sharing amongst all of us especially in such a tough time not only in our businesses, also in our mental states.
