Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens Society

Recognized by the Canadian Garden Council as Canada's Garden of the Year in 2015, the world class Historic Gardens is a 17 acre horticultural paradise located in historic Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, the first permanent European settlement in North America (1605).  Historically themed areas tell the story of Nova Scotia settlement from an agricultural and horticultural perspective, showcasing gardening methods, designs and materials representing more than four hundred years of local history. Five historically based core gardens are linked by paths through many other display areas featuring plant collections, garden art, water features and natural areas. Connecting pathways look westward over dykelands, evocative of a way of life centuries ago.

The Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens Society is a not-for-profit, charitable organization whose primary function is the maintenance and development of the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens, so that it may remain a special part of our world for future generations.

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, the Society will initiate a storytelling and story-collecting social media campaign. The goals are twofold - to allow readers to learn more about what makes the Gardens tick, and to provide a unique and rewarding way for supporters to assist the Gardens.
