ABOUT THE TRILLIUM PROGRAM
We introduced nominations as part of the Grimsby 2016 Summer Trilliums Program and has been a success for the last 3 years.
Gardeners who make our neighborhoods look beautiful deserve to be recognized. That’s why the Grimsby Garden Club and the Town of Grimsby sponsor and run this event. We want to celebrate Grimsby’s outstanding gardens.
