Not Who, But Watt

George-WattOn Sunday, Regina storyteller Vincent Murphy will be presenting a performance of this mini-play based on the journals of George Watt (pictured), the Scottish-born groundskeeper at Government House who in 1910 created the Edwardian garden that endures on the site to this day.

You can find out more about Watt, and the garden he created, on the Government of Saskatchewan website. Still beautiful today, the garden would have been even more remarkable back in 1910 when Regina was still pretty much a treeless dot on the vast prairies.

Not Who, But Watt will be held at Government House on Aug. 29 from 2-3 p.m. Admission is free.
