Next Meeting


Join us on Tuesday, February 1st at 7pm via Zoom.

Our speaker is Karl Gercens, who is a conservatory manager at Longwood Gardens, Pennsylvania, working on their display gardens, including a new Mediterranean-inspired landscape opening in 2024. He is also a noted garden photographer who has travelled to 3000 gardens worldwide.

His topic is "Pushing The Limits! Plant Selection and design inspired by gardens in Australia, New Zealand and the British Isles. The mild maritime climate of British Columbia is a very special place in Canada and the world! Let's explore gardens with a similar ability to have flowers and foliage flourish in milder winters and dry summers."
