March 13, 2020: ” Welcome to Gannaiden – Garden of Possibilities ”  Presented by Elaine Steinberg
Location: Herb Linder Annex, 303 Beaconsfield Blvd.
Time: 7:30pm-9:00pm. Please arrive by 7:15pm.
Elaine Steinberg will present an overview of Gannaiden history, philosophy, activities and a few tips, tricks and tidbits on her  ‘design- maintenance’ program. Started in 1990 as a private family garden in Vaudreuil-Dorion, Gannaiden opened to the pubic in 2017 as a sculpture-garden. Marcel Braitstein is a well know Canadian sculptor with works in museums across Canada and beyond North America. His wife Elaine Steinberg is the gardener. Despite being her seventies, Steinberg maintains the sculpture-garden on her own. “Hands on the land is important to me.  I have always wanted to grow old gardening. Growing old at Gannaiden is a work in progress” said Steinberg.
