Wendy Woodsworth

Wendy Woodworth graduated from U of T with an honours Bsc. specializing in Botany. Gardening experience was gained working for the Toronto Parks Department both outside and in the greenhouses.

Starting in 1982 she worked at Spadina Museum, first helping with the rehabilitation of the grounds and then managing the 6 acres, growing the annuals and vegetables used in the gardens and supplying decorative plants and flower arrangements for the house.

Because Spadina is an historic site, Wendy did much research into the availability of plant material in Toronto over the time period of the house, which was originally built in 1866 and has given talks to garden clubs and historic societies.
