We invite you to join our Head Gardener Jane Reksten on a guided tour of Beaulieu Gardens. Learn how Jane and our team of amazing volunteer gardeners steward our notable green space in the heart of the Beltline. The two-acre landscape reflects the Victorian era gardening styles, and the history of Lougheed House, while still focusing on sustainable gardening, local plants, and contmeporary methods. We will tour each of the garden beds, focusing on the plants that are in their prime. This is a perfect way to deepen your understanding of our gardens, whether purely for enjoyment, or to inspire your own gardening projects.

Jane Reksten has a BA from the University of Victoria in Microbiology and Environmental Studies and Diploma in Horticulture from Olds College. She worked in the landscape industry for five years before joining the Calgary Zoo and Botanical Gardens, first as the Schoolyard Naturalization Project leader, and later as Botanical Education Coordinator. Jane is currently the Manager, Botanic Gardens and Greenhouses at Olds College, and while on sabbatical for 2020, is the Head Gardener (Garden and Volunteer Consultant) at Lougheed House. Jane is a regular writer and speaker on a variety of gardening topics and enjoys sharing her love of learning and enthusiasm for horticulture.

Note: The ticket for your guided tour includes access to the house and does not need to be purchased alongside an admission fee. This tour is also weather dependent.
