The Vancouver Master Gardeners ( previously known since the mid 1980's as the Master Gardeners Association of BC ) was established in 2009. The Vancouver MGs are still affiliated with the VanDusen Botanical Garden Association and are now under the umbrella of the MGABC Provincial Association.
What do Vancouver Master Gardeners do?
The Vancouver Master Gardeners support the mission of MGABC by:
- providing Master Gardeners with educational opportunities about gardening and environmentally responsible gardening practices
- having Master Gardeners respond to questions in garden centres, farmers markets and community events across the Lower Mainland and on the Sunshine Coast.
- staffing the VanDusen Botanical Garden Plant Information Line, writing for local papers, and speaking to community groups
- participating in a variety of community projects including assistance with horticultural therapy programs in hospitals and other institutions, working with students and teachers in local schools, and supporting “greening” projects in community parks and public spaces.
