Mystery Garden Tour Event Organizers
A partnership has been cultivated between MUN Botanical Garden, the Friends of MUNBG (FOG), and the Newfoundland Horticultural Society (NHS) to plan and manage this year's tour.
Net event proceeds help advance projects championed by the three not-for-profit event organizers:
Memorial University of Newfoundland Botanical Garden A place to explore and play, MUN Botanical Garden has cultivated gardens and meandering trails nestled in our boreal forest. Discover beautiful displays of traditional and native plants, perennial and vegetable gardens, and a few surprises. Stop to feed the ducks in our pond then pause in the café for coffee or lunch. A gardener’s paradise, a place to inspire, come step into nature. 306 Mt. Scio Road, St. John’s www.mun.ca/botgarden 709.864.8590
Friends of MUN Botanical Garden Garden (FOG), a not-for-profit charity, is a membership-based organization providing a continuous, experienced-based learning for individuals from all walks of life with an interest in the botanical, horticultural and eco-system aspects of their natural environment. It helps preserve, interpret and manage the natural reserve areas of the Garden and through its activities furthers community awareness of, involvement in, and respect for, the natural environment as represented by the Garden. FOG’s share of net proceeds from these events will be directed to its ongoing campaign to raise funds required to restore and repurpose the registered heritage structure known as the Squires Carriage House, 315 Mt Scio Road.
The Newfoundland Horticultural Society has been encouraging anyone with an interest in growing plants since the mid 1800’s. This non-profit society promotes community, better practices in gardening and helps members increase their gardening knowledge and skills through a wide range of activities: guest speakers at monthly meetings, workshops, demos, newsletters, flower shows and exhibits. NHS also has a Floral Design Group. Proceeds from the MGT are utilized to attain technical equipment, to promote and support the goals and activities of the NHS, and to preserve its horticultural history.
