Village blacksmith Mihkel Rand began creating a garden on this 0.4 ha limestone hill in 1925.
Preparing the ground for rare trees and bushes he dug holes into the limestone terrain and carted thousands of loads of soil in there. In search of seeds for trees and bushes he visited most of the parks and gardens with most variety, he also made trips to Tallinn, Tartu and Viljandi. Good to know: The dendrarium of Mihkel Rand has over 100 species of trees and bushes. Dendrarium holds an abundance of foreign tree species.
