  • We went in December. Pity no flowers but have to visit again spring or summer. The flowers will light up the place. Very well built building. Thank you Irving’s.

  • Not huge but a very interesting stop. Highlights of the garden for me was the greenhouse that included the opportunity to observe active experiments happening in the university as well as the very educational and fascinating medicinal/edible garden in which both Indigenous and European plants are on growth along with good information. If you like plants for more than just looking at, stop here.
  • One of my favourite spots in the Wolfville region. Gorgeous any time of year with contrasting glass, stone, and life.
