The Ecology of Historic Gardens


Course description

This three-part course celebrates gardens that have been protected from extinction and those that have been heroically preserved and opened to the public. These once-endangered landscapes, thanks to a few groups of fervent garden advocates, are now accessible to everyone and serve as living, flourishing cultural landscapes for historians, botanists, horticulturalists, and garden lovers all over the world. We will explore the historical, social and cultural value of historic gardens and the practical challenges faced by individual restoration projects. The course is intended to develop an understanding of garden and landscape history and of the issues surrounding the ecology, conservation, and restoration of historic gardens.

NOTE: There are two garden visits scheduled for this course: Finnerty Gardens and The First Peoples House, which are both located on the UVic campus. Please contact the instructor ahead of time if you require any accommodation for these visits.
