Dundurn National Historic Site Event

Dundurn's 2-acreHistoric Kitchen Garden
From Our Garden to Yours
June 6, 2020 (12:00 PM - 4:00 PM)

Dundurn’s historic Kitchen Garden is hosting a FREE one-day, plant-sharing event. This event encourages communal growing, harvesting, and enjoyment of plants. Our hope is that these plants and what they produce will be shared with a larger community, and not hidden away in a back yard. Under the guidance of Garden Demonstrators, visitors will have the opportunity to dig up and pot ‘Victoria Rhubarb’ - named after Queen Victoria this red-stemmed variety dates back to 1837. Quantities are limited and participants are required to bring a plastic pot or sturdy plastic bag for transplanting. Throughout the afternoon, starting at 12:30pm, visitors are welcome to participate in free tours of the historic Kitchen Garden to capture a glimpse into the life of Sir Allan MacNab and his family and the many varieties of fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs which were grown in their time. There will also be a selection of interesting and unique heirloom plants from the Kitchen Garden for sale (cash only). The rhubarb (while supplies last) and garden tours are free.
