The In­ter­na­tional Peace Gar­den

Manitoba Gardener Magazine - - LOCAL DIRT -

The board bids a fond, farewell to Garry Enns as ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor at the In­ter­na­tional Peace Gar­den this March. Garry is re­cov­er­ing from his car ac­ci­dent and the prog­no­sis ap­pears to be re­as­sur­ing. Mean­while, Gwen Woo­ley has taken over re­spon­si­bil­ity as in­terim ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor as the search for Garry’s re­place­ment con­tin­ues.

The Gar­den is gear­ing up al­ready for an­other stel­lar year as Con­nie Lagerquist plans the an­nu­als dis­play and Jo­hannes Ol­wage gets the cac­tus and suc­cu­lents gar­den in gear. If you’re long­ing for a touch of green, take a drive to the Peace Gar­den. It’s only 2.5 hours from Win­nipeg and the green­house is open all year long.

The Peace Gar­den fea­tures one of the largest cac­tus and suc­cu­lent col­lec­tion in the world.
