Goals & Objectives

The Hutchison House Museum gardeners plan and maintain heritage accurate gardens on the property of the museum. These gardens are filled with heritage flowers and plants that would have been found in the gardens of Victorian Peterborough as well as plants that are indigenous to the area. The gardeners report to the Head Gardener, and are responsible for the upkeep, watering, and clean-up of the gardens throughout the year, with the spring an summer seasons being the busiest time.

Community Impact

The gardens help to maintain a heritage environment and aid in interpretation of the House’s history. The gardens also help to provide ingredients for Heritage Luncheons and other menus used at Hutchison House.

Volunteer Outcomes

Volunteers gain valuable experience with heritage gardens and plants, as well as becoming important members of the Hutchison House’s volunteer community.
