Limited to a small group, this is a unique opportunity to spend time with Mark.

Mark Cullen has been broadcasting and writing about the gardening experience since the early 80’s. “Escape to Reality“ is Mark’s 24th book. He says, “This is the most exciting book that I have ever written as it reflects the experience and passion for Canada’s most popular outdoor leisure time activity of two generations, mine and son Ben’s.”

Escape to Reality” is Mark’s second non-how-to book. Mark and Ben provide a well informed and deeply personal reflection on the state of gardening today, a look into their crystal ball and an explanation of why this is the most exciting time in the history of Canada to be a gardener.

In 2016 Mark was awarded the Order of Canada for “his connections with everyday Canadians through his gardening and environmental messages.”

He is also the Volunteer Chair of the Highway of Heroes Tree Campaign.
