The second Cultivate McCauley garden crawl, on July 10, featured three tremendous and yet very different McCauley gardens.

We first stopped at Jayne’s yard, filled with cherries, Saskatoons, grapes, and a lovely herb garden. We sampled some preserved currents and cherries.

Next, we met Wolf, an architect who salvaged his ageing home and planted a nature-inspired garden.

Last but not least, we met the Huget/Zenari household who transformed their front yard into a beautiful perennial garden – oh, and fed us snacks and Prosecco!
