Head to Fort Langley and visit a heritage garden filled with potatoes, rye, carrots, apples, peas, and beans; the same crops grown by Hudson’s Bay Company settlers in 1827.
Curious about nature and passionate about history? Talk to the guides dressed in historic costumes as they tend to the garden to learn the secrets of 19th century agriculture and food production. They’ll explain why potatoes were one of the most popular crops grown by the settlers!
When you are done admiring the garden, make sure to check out Fort Langley’s very own demonstration farm in the summer months.
