Spring is in full bloom at Etobicoke’s Wesburn Manor – thanks to the donation of hundreds of plants from Canada’s largest flower and garden festival.

On Tuesday, Canada Blooms helped bring a little taste of spring to the lives of Wesburn Manor residents by delivering more than 600 colourful plants with the help of Procter’s Cartage, which donated transportation of the flowers.

“I can’t think of a better way to wrap up Canada Blooms than by donating the flowers to the residents in long-term care,” Bruce Sudds, Marketing, Communications and Sponsorship manager of Canada Blooms, said in a statement. “Through this donation, the event continues to spread the joys and benefits of flowers and gardens to people who truly appreciate them.”

During Tuesday’s celebration at Wesburn Manor – one of the City of Toronto’s 10 long-term care homes – York West Councillor Anthony Perruzza, chair of the city’s Community Development and Recreation Committee, lauded the donation as yet “another example of the good that can be accomplished through corporate partnerships with the city.”

“Canada Blooms has once again demonstrated that it supports the communities in Toronto, and particularly the residents in our long-term care homes through this donation,” he said in a statement. “These flowers will help to brighten the rooms of residents at Wesburn Manor and in the community.”

This marks the seventh year that one of the city’s long-term care homes has benefited from the Canada Blooms donation, which provides a loving home for hundreds of healthy plants while improving the quality of life for long-term care residents.

Some of the flowers will be distributed to clients who live independently in the local area, but use support services offered by the city such as Wesburn Manor’s Adult Day Program or Homemakers and Nurses Services.
