About the Lynn Valley Garden Club
Lynn Valley Garden Club has a long history on the North Shore, being first established in 1943. The club meets the third Thursday of every month, except in July and August, and has a Member's Garden tour in July. Each meeting has a "Bright Spot" session, where members bring in plants from their garden to show and talk about. Each month a guest speaker is invited, usually a plant specialist from the Lower Mainland or Vancouver Island. An annual plant sale takes place every May, which is very popular with local residents as many plants brought in by members are heritage plants from long-established gardens. Funds raised at the plant sale are donated to various local charities, and the BC Council of Garden Clubs for gardening scholarships. Field Trips during the year also take place, to out-of-town nurseries, garden centres, and garden shows.
