Over the course of the past year the Board has worked hard on your behalf. The Royal Crown Garden was rebuilt and bloomed beautifully all summer, and a brand new species of rhododendron was planted in the Rhododendron Garden.
As well, this past summer, Premier Robert Ghiz and past premiers Catherine Callbeck, Keith Milligan and Pat Binns planted a “Premier’s Tree” at the Farm. This revived a long-standing tradition of having our PEI premiers plant a tree during their term of office, the last having been planted by former premier, Joe Ghiz in 1986.
The Board is proud of these accomplishments and particularly with having been able to make these enhancements to the property that we hold so dear. This has been made possible with the support of Research Manager, Dr. Maria Rodriguez, Property Manager, Gayle Arsenault and several staff members
