Upper Canada Village, ON, Aug 18, 2010 — The duties of the head gardener at Upper Canada Village, a living history museum in Morrisburg, Ontario, are many...and varied. Brian Henderson "lives" gardening as it was in the mid-1800s. It's a full time commitment, from seedlings, through summer, and the harvest. Brian Henderson uses "period" tools and methods...and wardrobe, as well. He's today's Heard Up North.
Henderson told his story to Jill Breit, of Traditional Arts in Upstate New York. TAUNY is our partner in the Garden Plot, and you can find more about Jill's trip to the Upper Canada Village gardens at the Garden Plot blog.
