Glen Villa Art Garden is a tranquil lakeside and woodland garden nestled within the pastoral setting of Quebec’s Eastern Townships.
Today’s garden is the creation of Patterson Webster, a visual artist, garden designer and writer. Focusing on the rich and unusual history of the property, the lives of the people who have lived on it and the ways that personal stories have shaped its natural beauty, she has transformed a traditional country estate into a landscape that explores questions of memory, identity and our relationship to the land. Paths crisscross the 750-acre property, leading to garden rooms and art installations that explore the history of the site and the people who have shared it.
The garden is open to pre-booked groups of 15 or more. These tours can be guided or unguided. All tours unless otherwise noted include an introduction to the garden by Patterson Webster.
Guided tours focusing on garden design, landscape and garden photography and ‘nature nerding’ are also available. These are led by experts in the field.
