National Round Table on Rural Heritage

Canada’s Rural Heritage is being lost at a staggering rate: majestic barns are being left to decay, traditional hubs of rural communities such as schools and churches are being abandoned, and rich cultural landscapes are being transformed by industrial farming practices.  Join us at this first-ever National Trust Round Table on Rural Heritage, where we launch a pan-Canadian dialogue on how the rural heritage is being threatened, what successful strategies are being deployed, and collectively, what the heritage sector can do to prevent further loss.

Springing from humble Loyalist roots in 1785, the University of New Brunswick (UNB), Fredericton, is the oldest continuously used English language university campus in Canada.

Perched on a hill overlooking the city and the Saint John River valley, the campus has expanded from a single structure (Sir Howard Douglas Hall) to almost 70 buildings, many under the 1957 Georgian-style master plan of celebrated American architect J. Frederick Larson. “Up the hill” was a phrase used by generations of Frederictonians to indicate their hometown choice for post-secondary education.

Fredericton Roots (Bus Tour)

Fredericton Roots will take you to the north side of the Saint John River to the St. Mary’s First Nation (whose reserve dates to 1867) and the historic Hayes Urban Teaching Farm.  The Hayes Farm sits on a 550-acre land grant from King George III to Loyalist Nehemiah Marks, transitioned to five generations of the Hayes family farm in 1836. Subsequent land donations (to St. Anthony’s Roman Catholic Church) and sales (including Doone St. social housing and Leo Hayes High School) reduced the small dairy farm to its current 7.5 acres, with no heirs able to carry on in farming.

Enter New Brunswick Community Harvest Gardens Inc. in 2015, with their idea to create an “Urban Teaching Farm” with a focus on relationship-based, small scale, regenerative farming for a new generation of mostly young people wishing to “test the waters” before committing to become full-time crop farmers. An “oasis” surrounded by ever-increasing urban development, the farm is home to one remaining hay barn with hand-hewn timbers, the original farmhouse dating from 1843, and a fresh crop of future farmers.

Our buildings don’t die of natural causes.

Cap off the conference and toast your new friends at an evening of finger-foods, libations, and conversation in one of Fredericton’s newest iconic spaces.

Reopened in 2013, the long vacant red brick Gibson roundhouse (1885) and machine repair shop – designated in 2008 – was given new life as one of Fredericton’s premier microbreweries. It now houses all of Picaroon’s brewing capacity, storage facilities and offices, as well as a large community room and display areas. Built on a floodplain, this rehabilitated space handily survived the dramatic flooding that came to Fredericton this past spring. Enjoy the 15 minute walk from downtown on the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge across the Wolastoq/Saint John River. Revel in the enchanting evening views of Fredericton’s downtown.
