On Sunday, August 25 at 10:30 am, the Glengarry Pioneer Museum will hold a heritage garden tour on the museum grounds. Local landscaper, Tammy MacGregor of Maxville will speak to fellow green thumbs and take them on a tour of the recently rejuvenated gardens at the museum.
With the help of several volunteers, parts of the museum gardens underwent a redesign with additional heritage varieties added. Traditional rhubarb outside the kitchen of the Star Inn and even wild tobacco that would have been air-cured and used for smoking, snuff or even as an insecticide were added to the gardens.
Come on Sunday morning to learn more about heritage gardening and for an enjoyable wander around the site.
For those who have never been to the Glengarry Pioneer Museum, it’s located at the intersection of County Roads 24 and 30. For more details, contact the museum at 613-527-5230 or visit the website: www.glengarrypioneermuseum.ca.
