Botany Brillance

Macdonald supports UFV involvement in Minter Gardens

Submitted by Myrtle Macdonald, Chwk


like the possibility that the University of Fraser Valley will get involved with Minter Gardens. Several faculties could each having responsibility for a section of the gardens. For one department alone it might be too much, although not impossible. Each could have a theme and place interns and workshops there.


I was privileged to join a tour of the very large and varied Devonian Gardens when I attended an alumni weekend at the University of Alberta. I was impressed with the variety of ways that that university is involved. It was thrilling.

I am against using the area for new condos. What a ridiculous waste of the heritage Brian Minter has provided through his many years of skilled dedication.
