The Gardens of Ferguson Cottage – Community Garden

P.J. G.

Ferguson Cottage is located at 37 Grand Avenue South, on the southeast corner of St. Andrews Street South and Grand Avenue South, overlooking the Grand River to the east, in the former City of Galt, now the City of Cambridge. The one-storey limestone cottage was constructed in circa 1838 and designed in the early Scottish architectural style.

The flower beds and vegetable gardens are maintained by volunteers of the Galt Horticultural Society. The property has raised vegetable beds, two pollinator/wildlife gardens, shade gardens and sun gardens as well as numerous species of trees and shrubs.
