Let’s keep a good thing growing!

A campaign to help your community grow

Learn how your gift will honour our diverse heritage, enhance the garden features beloved by so many and create an even more welcoming and valuable refuge for our community in the future.

Your gift will help transform the historic walled garden to provide an abundance of organic produce to share with the community while supporting learning and research.

Your gift will bring new life to a century-old treasure, enriching and rehabilitating our Japanese Gardens to become a destination experience on Canada’s West Coast.

Your gift will help reimagine and restore the historic Glass House in our 5.26-acre walled garden—one of Canada’s oldest working greenhouses.

Your gift will help us to enhance the enjoyment of the gardens while honouring someone you love or celebrating an important occasion in your life.

Honouring heritage with action

This short 10-minute film will introduce you to the history, heritage, and humanity of this spectacular place.  Learn about the people – the hands and hearts that have nurtured and been nurtured here – and how we can honour the past, present, and future with our actions today.

A Vision in Bloom celebrates how this place connects us to each other and how your donations will help us to build up the gardens as a community resource. From beehives to benches to food security and a Living Lab, many exciting initiatives are happening through A Vision in Bloom.

We hope you’ll be a part of it.

Ways to Give

All donations to A Vision in Bloom will receive a tax receipt. It’s easy to give online with a one-time gift or a year-long monthly pledge.
