We’ll miss you Rui

A sad farewell to Port Hardy’s “garden guy”, Rui Veloso, as he moves on to Coquitlam.

Dear editor,

Rui Veloso, Port Hardy’s “garden guy”, is moving on.  Since he came here in 2008, Rui has created many beautiful gardens; he has introduced us to new plants and new designs.  He used his expertise with stone walls to fashion spots among the greenery that allow visitors to take each other’s photographs without getting their feet dirty.  Here at the museum we often see people photographing the gardens at our corner.  We’ll miss you, Rui, but we wish you well.  We know that Port Hardy’s loss is Coquitlam’s gain.

Jane Hutton,
