The Port Carling Garden Centre is really pleased to release its new brand, after working closely with Allair Media Group of Gravenhurst to create the design and profile that we want to use to showcase our new location. We are really excited about extending our products and services through this second location, after our years of helping our clients create the ideal space for their gardens and grounds. Port Carling Garden Centre is a wonderful place to better serve our residents and cottagers, offering convenience and inspiration for all those who appreciate the joys of gardening.
This year we celebrated ten years of business growth in Muskoka Lakes, and we wanted to extend our appreciation to the community we live and work in. We decided that the most fitting gesture was the creation of a Memory Garden at Andy’s House Hospice in Port Carling, and we launched ‘Plant It Forward’, raising funds to build a restful place beautifully landscaped and planted. For every dollar value donated through our coupon program to the creation of the Memory Garden, Bala and Port Carling Garden Centres will donate the equivalent value to the costs of building the garden. Andy’s House is a project of the Andy Potts Memorial Foundation, honouring OPP officer, Andy Potts, who was tragically killed on duty. The residential hospice will be in a park-like setting overlooking Indian River, in the village of Port Carling, offering palliative care in a homey setting. The Memorial Garden will be a place for families to gather together and find solace in nature’s bounty.
As we reach the end of our fall season, and help our clients prepare for the winter hibernation and anticipate the spring re-birth, we’d like to take this chance to thank all of our clients. All of us at the Bala and Port Carling Garden Centres love to garden, and to play a role in helping our customers brighten their lives with our flowers, shrubs, trees, and landscaping accents. We look forward to re-connecting at the end of winter and help you with your garden visions for 2016.
