The Friends of Government House Gardens Society were pleased to be included in the Canadian Garden Council’s 100 Garden Moments of Canada, putting the Gardens in the Garden Hall of Fame. As 2022 is the Canadian Year of the Garden, this distinction was even more treasured by the Friends.
According to Ann Wilson, President, “The Friends are honored to help the Canadian Garden Council in its goal to celebrate garden events, activities, organizations, and leaders on an annual basis. The members of the Society are proud to be the current caretakers of the grounds and gardens of Government House on behalf of British Columbia’s citizens.”
