Open Gardens

Growing Smarter:
Embracing resilience for sustainable gardens

One of the highlights of the 2023 VHPG Study Weekend are the self-directed Open Garden Tours.
They offer an opportunity to be inspired, to be rejuvenated and to connect with fellow gardeners.
The 17 gardens offered for your enjoyment will do just that.

They have been grouped so that visitors from the south can easily access the gardens in the South Surrey/Langley area on their way into Vancouver, the Saturday gardens in Vancouver will allow visitors to easily attend the Soirée at Southlands Nursery. The Sunday gardens on the North Shore highlight gardening at different elevations.

Finally, on Monday the gardens on Bowen Island offer you a range of gardening styles which will encourage your creativity.
