The Central Experimental Farm is the most important scientific landscape in Canada. Founded in 1886, the property has been used to develop, test and promote agricultural knowledge and products critical for Canada's economy and geopolitical position. The tour will explore the underlying design logic of the site, its architecture, ornamental features and its place in Ottawa's larger science and urban systems.
GUIDE: Peter Anderson, doctoral student at Queens University, is completing a thesis on the historical geography of the CEF. Julie Harris, heritage consultant and public historian, co-authored the CEF Management Plan.
