The Sechelt Garden Club is on the Sunshine Coast of BC, a 40 minute ferry ride north-west of Vancouver. It was first incorporated as a non-profit society in 1967.

Mission:

  • Stimulate an interest in environmentally friendly gardening.
  • Facilitate a forum for the exchange of plants and ideas.
  • Assist members to understand and improve their gardening methods.
  • Educate members about plant related topics.
  • Foster interest and involvement in the community.

Meetings:

  • Our meetings are held the last Monday of every month from 7:00pm to 9:30pm at the Seaside Centre in Sechelt not including June, July, August or December.
  • After a short business meeting to bring our members up-to-date, monthly guest speakers present on a broad variety of topics and gardening information.
  • Our tea/coffee/dessert time provides members with the opportunity to socialize and share ideas. We pride ourselves on being welcoming and inclusive and value all levels of expertise.
  • We often have plant tables where members can purchase plants brought by our guest speaker or members. We also have a ‘share table’ where members bring in various plants or gardening treasures for members to take home for a small donation.

Membership:

  • Dues are $20/year for individuals and $30/year for a couple.
  • We are members of the BC Council of Garden Clubs.
