Recently there have been problems with the distribution of my blog posts, so I’m re-sending this, my most recent post. For some of you, it will be new. Apologies to those for whom it is a duplication. For the past few years, we’ve opened Glen Villa Art Garden to the general public on Open Garden Days. This has been extremely rewarding for me personally. It gave me a chance to meet and talk with so many people: old friends and new, visitors to the area, neighbours, fellow gardeners, artists, young and old. We talked about plants, garden design, or whatever was on our minds. We shared ideas and I learned so much from the exchange.Opening the garden was a way to raise money for the Massawippi Foundation, our local conservation society. In two years, we raised almost $100,000 and this money has gone directly into building trails and making the land we conserved open to all, at no cost, year round. I’m proud of what we accomplished together. But all good things come to an end. This coming summer we will open the garden a limited number of times, to pre-booked groups of 15 people or more. Please get in touch for details on dates and prices. I hope to see old and new friends in the garden this summer!
