Gardens Maintained by the Ameliasburgh Garden Club
Drew MacCandlish Memorial Garden
The Drew MacCandlish Memorial Garden was designed and installed in September 2015 by Ben O’Brien, a two-time AGC bursary recipient. The garden beautifies the grounds of the Ameliasburgh Town Hall, providing a haven for bees and butterflies, and paying tribute to a wonderful man who did so much to enhance the beauty of Prince Edward County.
Drew McCandlish was an honorary member and long-time friend of the Ameliasburgh Garden Club. He passed away in November 2014. His passion for gardening and all things growing translated into more than 25 years of working in the nursery trade. Drew was responsible for the design of many residential gardens throughout Prince Edward County. One of his largest projects was the design and installation of an extensive three acre sculpture garden located at the Oeno Gallery at Huff Estates Winery.
The garden is located on either side of the front entrance to the Ameliasburgh Town Hall, welcoming all who enter.
