Batoche National Historic Site features two vegetable gardens and one flower bed. The flower bed welcomes visitors arriving at the Visitor Center and is a legacy of perennials provided by staff who return to care for it annually. The produce gardens at the historical buildings are planted, weeded, and cared for by school groups and interpreters - often with historic tools.
The produce is shared among visitors and staff come autumn, and is also used to make delicious stews. Grow your own experience and take home a taste of Batoche at the Rectory garden or the Caron Home Family garden.

Bring the Kids!
Summer’s here and Canada’s public gardens are at their best. You know you want to visit them yourself – who wouldn’t want to stroll through a beautiful park filled with flowers – but maybe you feel you’re so tied up with your children or grandchildren you just can’t get away. Well, there’s an easy solution to that: bring them along!
