The West Vancouver Garden Club was founded in 1962 by a small group of gardening enthusiasts who wanted to meet with others who shared their passion. Today our membership is over 80 and we continue to be active in the beautification of our community through financial and floral donations. The Club also broadens our knowledge of plants and gardening techniques.
Meetings are held at the Presbyterian Church Hall, 2893 Marine Drive, West Vancouver on the first Wednesday of each month at 7.00 p.m. (except January and August). We offer a wonderful array of local and international speakers on a variety of horticultural subjects. Members may also purchase plants, donated by other members, very reasonably from the plant table. Following the meeting, refreshments are served and there are opportunities to socialize, check the notice board for gardening information and select from the table of gardening magazines available for loan or, in some cases, keep.
One of the best ways to meet other Club members is to volunteer, e.g. baking for the monthly meetings, helping at the plant table or membership desk. We will also canvas you to determine your availability to help at various Club activities.
A garden, where one may enter in and forget the whole world, cannot be made in a week, nor a month, nor a year; it must be planned for, waited for and loved into being.
