In the heart of Humboldt lies a wonderfully designed garden, tended by volunteers for the enjoyment of all. The Humboldt and District Heritage Garden will be hosting tours on Saturday, June 22 for people to familiarize themselves with the history of the garden and some of the plants that live there.  

The garden, adjacent to the Reid Thompson Library and City Hall, was initially planted in 2005 as part of a regional, Centennial art project that commemorated women’s contribution to prairie life over the past 100 years. This garden has been maintained by volunteers over the past 20 years. 

Some of these volunteers will be giving walking tours of the garden on Saturday, June 22 between 10am and noon. Drop by the garden to find out more about history of this living piece of art, learn about the unique heritage plants that live there, and pick up a copy of an updated garden map to help you identify the trees, shrubs and flowers that live in this tranquil downtown greenspace. 

The Heritage Garden is Humboldt’s community garden and the committee is always looking for more volunteer gardeners. Whether you have a “green thumb” already or just want to get your hands dirty, these tours are great way to meet the committee and get involved!
