art in the garden
The best part of the summer is Art in the Garden Camp at the Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens on the Acadia Campus in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Thirteen years ago the garden's horticulturist, Melanie Priesnitz and I designed a week long summer camp which emphasized outdoors, creativity, and beauty. Each summer I offer two weeks of camp which has grown into a tradition for the children in our community. Our first campers from 2007 are now all grown up and each year we welcome new children to experience our camp traditions.
