#1 – The Blue House

29 croissant Rose, Breckenridge

My garden’s focus is on trees. A 9-year-old suburban “work in progress”, I’m adding new plantings to existing trees and shrubs on an abandoned pasture, with now 60+ different varieties. A meadow is being encouraged on a dry west-facing slope. Pesticide-free vegetables will be on sale from Marché McMillan (www.marchemcmillan.ca), as well as local arts and crafts.

Les arbres sont en vedettes dans mon jardin, avec maintenant plus de 60 variétés différentes. Un travail en cours depuis maintenant 9 ans, j’ajoute de nouvelles plantations à des arbres et arbustes déja existants dans les pâturages abandonnés. Lors de votre visite dans mon jardin vous pourez acheter des légumes sans pesticides de la ferme Marché McMillan (www.marchemcmillan.ca), ainsi que de l’art et artisanat du Pontiac.
