On August 4, Pat and Norman Webster will be welcoming the public to the gardens of their home, Glen Villa in Saint Catherine de Hatley, as a fundraiser for the Massawippi Foundation. Established in 2010, the foundation helps fund local community projects as well as supporting the Massawippi Conservation Trust, an initiative working to preserve natural spaces around Lake Massawippi.
“We’re committed to not just land conservation but to supporting the community projects that the foundation has funded,” said Pat Webster, explaining that the foundation has funded more than $100,000 in community work since its foundation four years ago.
For $20 per person, anyone who is interested can visit the Gardens of Glen Villa on August 4 from 10am to 4pm. Over the course of that time people are invited to wander the 750-acre property on a self-guided tour through unique sculptures that highlight aspects of local history in what Webster calls “a different approach to creating a garden.”
