Greetings to All!!
We will be gathering at the Agricultural Campus of Dalhousie University in Truro, Nova Scotia on Saturday, Oct. 17th for a work party in the John Higgins Memorial Garden.

The John Higgins memorial garden is in the alumni gardens at the University and will include an area for an outdoor classroom, water feature, retaining wall and plantings. The design incorporates many of John’s concepts for the gardens.
Many of the AALD members are graduates of the Ornamental horticulture and Design program and were student’s of John’s.
We would love to have you come out to our work party for phase two of the project. We will also be having a tour of the Campus gardens lead by Darwin Carr in the afternoon.
