The commitment and vision of David Rutherford

As the season turns to fall, we can be grateful again for the gardens at Royal Roads, and for the gardeners who have looked after this special place, generation after generation. This video was prepared to highlight one of those special people.


David Rutherford began working in the gardens in 1970 when it was under the care of Royal Roads Military College and continued to shape its growth as Royal Roads University until 2010. This video commemorates his passion, his commitment and his vision.
