Topic: Hycroft Garden Restoration

Speaker: Joanne Melville

Joanne Melville has been gardening for much of her life as she started at a young age by working in the family garden with her mother. She currently works in the church memorial garden and in the gardens of the strata where she now resides. For the past several years she has been co-chair of the Hycroft garden [University Women’s Club, on McRae in Vancouver] which covers almost two acres in the heart of the city. It is very beautiful and particularly unique because of the number and variety of heritage trees on the property. The largest sequoia in the province grows in the garden. The Hycroft Garden Committee’s recent and continuing focus has been to return the gardens to their Edwardian roots. In her talk, Joanne will show a short video on the history of the garden and then will give a talk with a number of photographs about the updates of the past five or so years.
