Speaker: Mark Burleton

The NCC’s Mark Burleton is the manager of grounds and greenhouses for official residences, including Rideau Hall, which comprises 80 acres, about half of which is lawn. In a time of changing weather and climate patterns combined with keeping up with proper appearances in key government locations while being environmentally responsible is daunting. Mark will show us some of Rideau Hall history, present and future plans for the gardens and greenhouses as well as letting us in on some of the lesser known projects and activities associated with managing the gardens of Rideau Hall.
