In this role she is called on to build new opportunities to collaborate nationally through renewing this magnificent garden by enhancing the programming toward peace and justice. This garden is a jewel for Manitoba, straddling the boarder with North Dakota, it has a long and prestigious history. In 1928 it was created through the vision of Dr. Henry J Moore, a Canadian Horticulturist who was inspired while attending a gathering of gardeners in Greenwich, Connecticut. He conceived of creating a garden on the international boundary where the people of the two countries could come enjoy the experience and lead to building warm friendship. On Today’s Podcast In this episode we talk to Dorothy Dobbie, a businesswoman, a writer, a photographer, a speaker, a former Politian, a publisher and a radio host.

Throughout Dorothy’s career she has consistently worked to bring communities together. One of Dorothy’s passions these days is her incredible work on the International Peace Garden. Not unlike today the International Peace garden project was spearheaded by strong leadership from the highest levels of society and saw Lady Eaton from Canada and Clara Jane Ford from the US as early champions. The International project sparked the imagination of many and drew people it, the art of the possible with 50,000 people attending the dedication ceremony on 14 July 1932. Dorothy is also involved with the One Million Tree Challenge launched this September by the City of Winnipeg in partnership with CN and Tree Canada. The initiative will see one million trees be planted as the population of the city grows to one million over the next 20 years.

Dorothy encourages individuals as well as organizations such as the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region to get involved.
