A Labour of Gardening Love in Lindsay

Mr. Tom Huff has been a resident at Caressant Care Lindsay for almost a year and a half. He has taken great care of our patios and

gardens in the summertime and also the plants in our greenhouse year round.

Tom graduated from the University of Guelph with a degree in Agriculture and then went to the University of Toronto for Teacher's College.

Tom began his teaching career at Lindsay Collegiate Vocational Institute (LCVI) where he taught science and horticulture. He loved teaching and he stayed at LCVI until his retirement.

Tom does not expect anything in return for the hard work he has put into maintaining our gardens. He does it for his love of gardening and has done a phenomenal job. He maintains them daily; watering, weeding, and pruning. We have received a great deal of compliments from staff, residents and families on these gardens since Mr. Huff has taken them over and the patio is used more than it ever has been.
