Garden honours educator John Higgins
A new garden at Dalhousie University Agricultural Campus, formerly Nova Scotia Agricultural College, honours the memory of John Higgins, longstanding professor in the Landscape Horticulture Technology Program. Higgins inspired students from 1978-1998, was a founding member of the Atlantic Association of Landscape Designers, and was instrumental in developing landscape designer certification. A cooperative design effort by AALD members, as well as volunteer and student participation and sponsorship contributions made the tribute garden a reality. The Truro, N.S., garden was dedicated in October.
