History Corner - 1955 family garden winner

A garden 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) from Yorkton on the Charlie Bull’s farm. They had won the first prize for a family garden in 1955. We have no information about what organization was awarding the prizes. Debbie Hayward, author of the Gardener’s Notebook in Yorkton This Week has this to say about the photo: “The garden has a wonderful design, with a great variety of vegetables and flowers, a walkway down the middle for easy access and for strolling, and a lush shelter belt. It’s beautifully tended, very neat and weed-free; it must have been a delight to see! The Bull family obviously took great pride in their garden!” Photo: Norman Roebuck Collection
