Perhaps it’s fitting that the University of Alberta-operated Devonian Botanic Garden offers a wide-range of adult workshops for those with a thirst for knowledge for everything from art and photography to, of course,, gardening and landscaping. Learn all about orchids, budding and grafting, growing a bonsai and creating a feng shui garden. For the serious gardener, there’s a Master Gardener Program designed to teach you all the skills required to kick-start your career in horticulture.
Every December, the Devonian Botanic Garden’s Kurimoto Japanese Garden is transformed into a candle-lit winter wonderland. Thousands of candles line the paths, and visitors can enjoy apple cider, warm up at bonfires and listen to carolers. This year, Luminaria takes place on December 5 and 6, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are available online at www.devonian.ualberta.ca/Events/Luminaria.aspx.
This huge botanical garden is part of the University of Alberta and features a Kurimoto Japanese Garden, extremely beautiful to stroll in as it unfolds before you. For botanists, this is a must-see place with a diverse and native plant collection. And, for the average visitor, they have numerous events like their Pyjama Party and Opera al Fresco that must be booked early.
