Film: Quatre Vents – the Maturation of a Garden by Frank Cabot

Frank Cabot was the benefactor behind the restoration of Aberglasney. Quatre Vents was his family home in Charlevoix County, Quebec. The film is an illustrated talk, narrated by him and shows how several major elements of Quatre Vents evolved during the last quarter of the 20th century. It shows what can be done with vision (and plenty of money).
