Most visitors to Dundurn castle overlook this well-manicured garden at the east end of the property. This is worth a few-minute stroll during the open season of June through October. Have a seat on the bench and watch butterflies fluttering among the blooming flowers. This garden has another purpose besides beauty. Since the mid-19th century, it has generated fruit, vegetables and herbs used by the chefs at Dundurn Castle. A percentage of the crop from the Kitchen Garden is also donated to local food banks. For a special treat, inquire about the free garden tours, how you can help maintain the garden and the occasional cooking workshops.
