Gardening Exhibit has opened
The Fisher's latest exhibition has opened this week. Titled "How Does My Garden Grow: The Education of a Gardener," it features approximately 100 items - including books, posters, photographs and ephemera - from the Fisher collections. The exhibit approaches horticultural history from the particular viewpoint of how people learn to cultivate plants – both historically and as individual gardeners today. While the main focus is on historical material, each of the three main sections of the exhibit will also make reference to modern examples, both British and Canadian, thereby demonstrating that all these modes of learning are as relevant today as they were in the past, and all have as their basis the love of plants and the universal human pleasure we take from them.
