We are honoured to announce that Farm Credit Canada, through its Agrispirit Fund, has awarded a $10,000 grant to Glengarry Fencibles Trust for the restoration of the heritage garden and dry-stone wall of the Bishop’s House.
This corporation, headquartered in Regina, Saskatchewan, is focussed on all concerns agricultural, from financing through to training and information. Their Agrispirit Fund’s particular mandate is the enhancement of rural communities. The potential of our beautiful landscape, set in the rolling countryside of Glengarry, fit their criteria.
The FCC’s generous funding will allow us to stabilize most of the garden wall, clear a safe pathway through the lilacs, restore antique lamp posts, and purchase heritage plants.
Our utmost goal is to allow all visitors to experience the beauty and serenity of the Bishop’s House, part of St. Raphael’s Ruins National Historic Site.
