Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Volunteers … The Key to Success … Everyone Wins! ~ Peterborough Garden Show ~ Interview

Cauleen Viscoff, Co-Chair, Peterborough Garden Show
“A picture says a thousand words” … then there was the Peterborough Garden Show!
The Peterborough Garden Show is truly a “Magical Place” for gardeners, photographers, grandparents, young families and children who can enjoy a fabulous time at one of “Ontario’s best Garden Shows”!
“THE INSIDE SCOOP” interview continues with Cauleen Viscoff, Co-Chair, Peterborough Garden Show  …
Volunteers … The Key to Success … Everyone Wins!
The Peterborough Garden Show has an incredible 400 volunteer base that put forth an effort that adds to the success of this Show! Ontario Festivals Visited has attended the Show on several occasions and we can attest to the visible positive effort the Volunteers contribute. You experience this from the warm welcome at the front door, to assistance throughout the Show, to walking you out to your vehicle with your purchases.
The Show draws on the Peterborough Community Garden Network, which is made up of about 38 groups. Check it out at http://growpeterborough.org/.
The Peterborough Horticultural Society and the Peterborough and Northumberland Master Gardeners are “not-for-profit” organizations of passionate volunteers who host the garden show to raise money so they can gladly give it back to their community for: scholarships, awards and bursaries to students studying horticultural related post-secondary studies, supporting Master Gardeners in Training along with grants to community gardens.
“For the Love of Gardening” … a bit of history...
The first Peterborough Garden Show with 70 display booths was in 2001 and was presented as a one-time event to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the Peterborough Horticultural Society. The response was so enthusiastic that two years later, along with the Peterborough Master Gardeners, they did it again.
2015 marks the Peterborough Garden Show’s 15th year with 8 well-known speakers over two and a half incredible days. The Show hosts 150 vendors and exhibitors who are landscapers, gardeners, growers, teachers and designers along with many not-for-profit organizations; they have garden displays and demonstrations; an ambitious interactive children’s garden; the latest in garden tools, a fashion show and so much more..
