Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens
Category: Featured Public Gardens and Garden Festivals
Location: 32 University Avenue, Wolfville, NS, Canada

The Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens occupy more than 6-acres and feature native flora from the Wapna’ki/Acadian Forest Region. You will have the opportunity to walk through a built bog, observe plants and wildlife in the planted Marsh, walk through a variety of recreated woodland ecosystems and visit the more formal plantings in the Medicinal & Food Garden, Herbaceous Border, Experimental Garden and Conservatory. Together, these plant collections embody the importance of conservation, the value of research, and the aesthetic possibilities of native plants. Importantly, the Gardens constitute a living gene bank for local native flora, supporting researchers dedicated to the recovery and protection of endangered plant species.
