The History of the Experimental Farm: Dominion Arboretum and Ornamental Gardens

April 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Poster for Zoom webinar about the History of the Experimental Farm and Arboretum in Ottawa

Join us for the final lecture of the season while we sit down with Propagator and Landscape Gardener, Robert Glendinning, to discuss the history of the Dominion Arboretum and Ornamental Gardens. The lecture will consider how these trees are documented, where they came from historically, and how that happens today. It will also include important plant breeders’ work, like that of Isabella Preston, and the day-to-day operations in fostering and preserving the country’s living artefacts. Celebrate spring with the Bytown Museum and Robert Glendinning as the plants of the Arboretum and Ornamental Gardens begin to bloom!
