Garden Making Magazine Party


November 9, 2010

Last night, at Peridot Resto Lounge in Toronto, Garden Making Magazine celebrated its first anniversary. After only one year the magazine's circulation is more than 20,000. It is sold throughout this country and its U.S. presence is expanding. So far it is in 17 states.

You will find it on almost every Canadian magazine stand that sells gardening magazines.

The party, thrown by Garden Making Publisher, Michael Fox, and Editor, Beckie Fox, hosted writers, photographers, advertisers, magazine industry colleagues among others.

Below you can see Beckie thanking her supporters. She gave special thanks to two people who contribute much to the magazine, Horticultural Consultant, Judith Adam, and Design Director, Gary Hall.

There were a lot of familiar faces in the crowd.

John had contacted me just over a week before, looking for gardening experts to appear on the new show, which will start airing nationally in 2011 on CTV. I figured that I could tell him some of my ideas about possible choices but since I had been invited to this party, why not bring him along so that he could make up his own mind? I advised him not to tell anyone what he was doing for fear that he might be mobbed.

I think after a couple of hours with this group he may have some new leads.

Some of the garden writers that attended (below from left to right) were Lorraine Hunter, Veronica Sliva, Lorraine Flanigan, and Valerie Hauch of The Toronto Star.

If you are hosting a garden related event in the GTA and would like it covered in gardentoronto.ca or would like to place an e-poster about it on our Events Calendar, just contact me. I am always delighted to promote anything gardening in Toronto.
