Sessions

The History of Butchart Gardens (at Mary Winspear Centre)

The history of Butchart Gardens starts with the manufacture of Portland cement in Canada. Robert Pim Butchart was the first Canadian to successfully manufacture the product. His wife, Jennie, was more interested in repairing the landscape left by his venture here on the west coast. The results of her efforts have lasted for over one hundred years and they have incidentally brought considerable prosperity to Vancouver Island and Victoria.
