Have you been to The Bradley Museum? If yes then you know how special a place it is. If not, let me fill you in.
The Bradley Museum is a Mississauga heritage site, located at 1620 Orr Road. It is a two acre site with four historic buildings that were erected in the 1800’s. The area is within a maple grove and features gorgeous walking trails. It’s one of the best places to go in the city to experience nature and history.
It’s a place we love to go during the spring, summer, autumn, and even winter. And, seeing as we’re still in the heat of summer, we thought we’d relay some information about an upcoming event.
You see, there is a Heritage Kitchen Garden at The Bradley Museum, which represents how early settlers would grow crops and such. On August 25th, the Museum will be doing a specific tour to showcase the garden and we think it’s a perfect way for you to start your love affair. See the details below:
Sunday, August 25 – 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Jams & Jellies
“Almost every settler home had a small orchard, with soft fruit bushes planted in the garden. Knowing which native fruits were good to eat was passed onto settlers by Indigenous people, who showed settlers how to cook and dry the fruit. Sample our currant jelly, mint jelly and raspberry jam with fresh baked biscuits cooked on the hearth in Bradley kitchen.”
So from 1PM to 3PM on August 25th, you’re invited to 1620 Orr Road to see the Museum and its Heritage Garden in all its splendour. It’s a great event for the whole family, and you’re just south-east of Clarkson, so you’ll be able to head into the town to grab some food right afterwards. And that sounds like a pretty damn good Sunday to us. See you there!
