News Jul 03, 2009 Flamborough Review

Westfield Heritage Village was successful in its application to the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF) for a grant of $45,000, which will initiate three projects at the Rockton facility.

The first project is to plan, re-generate and interpret Westfield’s post-contact period Iroquois teaching garden in the ca. 1810 Brant’s Ford Native Village.

The funding will also support land reclamation through the planting of common, rare and endangered trees once native to the region. Westfield’s forest area, will be enhanced, lost trees replaced and new trees planted. Also a teaching forest will be created.

The third project is to plan, construct and interpret a new Regency period garden in Lockhart farm that includes a bee observation hive and historical greenhouse. It will be used to highlight late pioneer life and sustainable farming practices applicable to today.

Projects will officially open on Earth Day 2010.
