The Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson has always believed that we’re here to be stewards of the Earth. A long career as a revered television host and journalist led to her appointment as Governor General of Canada.  After several lives’ worth of experiences, she continues to find spiritual fulfillment in the simple beauty of her perennial garden.

Declared a “prophet” by TIME magazine, globally renowned philosopher and writer John Ralston Saul’s home garden intentionally mirrors the people and place where he lives. Aligning with his writings, his garden rejects colonial European thinking, by deliberately featuring plants that exist naturally in the northern hemisphere.
