Parks Canada and the Manitoba Master Gardener Association are working together to establish, maintain and cultivate the garden landscapes at Riel House National Historic Site. This includes: researching and showcasing historically accurate vegetables, herbs and flowers that reflect the important link to the lifestyle of Métis families, such as the Riels, who settled in the traditional river lot pattern along the Red River.
