A proud supporter of our community in ON, Canada
Doris received her Master Gardener Certificate in March 2013 after completing the Master Gardener Program through the Nova Scotia Agricultural College, now Dalhousie University. Doris discovered she had a real passion for gardening when she moved to Kingston in 2006 and transformed her treeless and empty back yard into a garden with several garden beds, five trees and back fence patio without having any formal gardening education.
During the last course with Dalhousie in 2012, Doris had an opportunity to participate in a credit course called The British Garden which included travel to the UK and The Netherlands to attend The Floriade and tour 18 other gardens.
She is also a watercolour artist and photographer. She has worked part-time as a travel agent, designing and leading tours for small groups of women; in particular, garden and art tours.
The Netherlands and UK garden tour: Discover The Floriade: The World Horticultural Expo, the Keukenhof and other fabulous gardens of The Netherlands. And be inspired by several English gardens while learning about plantings and some great history.
