Chat with the Horticultural Team, the Environmental Educators, and other visitors

Our staff and volunteers will be posted around the gardens and trails and will be happy to chat! Want to know how to put your garden to bed for the Fall? What is that purple flower in your garden (bring a picture)? Ever wondered how a Pitcher Plant actually eats? What is that growing on your tree? What kind of ducks are those in the pond?  We've got the answers!

Enjoy getting out to socialize? This is a great event to meet up with friends and enjoy some time with your community.

Wellness in the Garden

If immersing yourself in nature wasn't enough - how about some yoga for your mind, body, and soul! Heather Pitcher from Integration Health will lead 20 minute chair yoga sessions throughout each morning and afternoon time-slot. 



As our parking lot is small, please carpool if possible. We have overflow parking across the road from the main field centre and extra parking behind the Memorial University Research facilities up the hill across from the Garden.
