We look forward to hearing from you!
The Club welcomes new members. We encourage you to contact us to inquire about attending a general meeting as a guest before making a commitment to join.
Our new member intake is in the early spring each year, and we provide an orientation for all our new members to introduce them to the many and varied volunteer opportunities within the Club.
Membership fees are $75 annually, payable in January. Club activities take place during weekdays January to June, and again from September to December. There are no Club functions during July and August.
If you are interested in attending a meeting or in discussing joining the Club, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. and one of our Membership Committee will be in touch.
Alternatively, if you know someone who is already a member of the Club you can talk to them and they can assist you with joining.

FUNDING GARDEN PROJECTS
If your organization is looking for funding support for a garden project within Metro Vancouver please contact us. Our Fundraising page lists all the garden projects that the Club has supported since its inception in 1961.
Someone from our Board would be happy to discuss your project with you to better understand if there is a fit between your organization’s needs and our capacity for timely support, prior to filling out a project application.
After discussion and a mutual agreement to proceed, we will then ask you to complete a project application which our Board will review. If your project is supported by the Board, we will then ask your organization to present the project request to our full membership at a general meeting. The project will proceed if it is supported by the membership.
HORTICULTURAL PRESENTATIONS AND SPEAKERS
The Club hosts a speaker at each of our general meetings. Approximately 70 – 90 members attend each meeting, most of which are held at the VanDusen Botanical Garden Floral Hall. Our members enjoy learning about a wide variety of horticultural topics, and we welcome inquiries about speaking to our membership. Some of our past speakers can be seen on our Meetings page. Please email us for further information.
