The Fort Vancouver Garden Through the Seasons
with Robb Rosser, Betty Stolz, Master Gardeners and Fort Vancouver volunteers
Fort Vancouver Garden volunteers Robb Rosser and Betty Stoltz will present a brief overview of the history of the original Hudson's Bay Company Fort Vancouver garden, and the development of the current interpretive garden.
A slide show will highlight the garden's progression through the seasons, and show the gardening practices currently employed by garden volunteers, in keeping with the methods used and plants grown at the Fort in the 1840s.
Robb Rosser has been a Master Gardener since 1996, and a Fort volunteer for the past three years. From 2000 through 2015 he authored "The Garden Life" column for the Columbian newspaper.
Betty Stoltz has been a Master Gardener since 2008, and has volunteered in the Fort garden since 2011.
