Canada Blooms 2006

Toronto Convention Centre

The DSWAC came to build a replica of the Toronto City Hall for this year's Canada Blooms theme of "Our Town". About 14 members of the Association constructed the 38 tonne stone garden feature over the 5 days that the show was on to give people an understanding of the process that goes into transforming random shaped natural material into beautiful structures of free standing stone. As we worked, people remarked not only on how wonderful the garden feature was, but also how peaceful and enjoyable the whole operation was to watch...
