Visionary Gardeners is a cinematic documentary series filmed across Canada. In the premiere season, we visit beautiful gardens and meet their gardeners. Travelling from the mountain ranges of Vancouver Island, across the wintry prairies, and to the rocky coast of Ontario’s Georgian Bay. Along the way, we’re introduced to the expansive minds of those who have brought their personal innovations and visions to gardening.
In each episode, we meet two visionary gardeners, with different yet related visions. They reveal personal stories of their first experiences in a garden. They tell us of their ‘eureka’ moment, when they discovered something. It is their exceptional ideas, which set them on their individual gardening paths. The series captures the state of being that inspires their creativity, by delving into the minds, beliefs, and motivations of the true visionary.
