Your Garden Legacy
Whistling Gardens Welcomes Garden Legacy Donors

"Established to gratefully acknowledge the goodwill and kindness of generous donors. Together, Norfolk County's Premiere Botanical Gardens will continue to grow into a world-class horticulture destination in Canada for generations to enjoy"

Darren and Wanda Heimbecker Our Garden Story... The vision was established over 25 years ago, and with the purchase of our historic farm in 2003, the development plans were soon realized as the shovel hit the ground! Norfolk County's lush bountiful region was hand selected for it's rich sandy loam soil growing conditions, respectful agriculture philosophy and close proximity to urban centers. Our dream to develop Canada's newest privately owned botanical garden, not witnessed in over 50 years, was now underway in Ontario's Garden!

The gardens are being planted "in perpetuity" for the community to enjoy as a public sanctuary while also incorporating multi-purpose agriculture uses.

Our happy and kindness team culture is vital to our success. Unaware of the community’s support and encouragement awaiting us, a Garden Legacy Program is established to recognize the generosity of donors, community groups, families, the corporate community and garden guests offering monetary gifts, in kind donations, In Loving Memory, commemorative garden benches, tree purchases for dedications and plantings, construction supplies, birds, bulbs, plants and more.

"As caretakers, our lifetime is dedicated to reinvesting revenue profits and our hearts and souls in creating Norfolk County’s Premiere Botanical Gardens. We are truly grateful for each garden guest and your kindness, which keeps us motivated and humbled. Your generosity has caught us by surprise as we care for your gifts while on this incredible journey."
