Help Us Grow


Why does HCP need your support?

The Gardens at HCP are unique, enchanting, well-loved, and nurtured—truly a “hands on” garden experience. Much of the creation and maintenance of the gardens has been carried out by teams of volunteers, providing experiences rich in mentorship, camaraderie, and healthy outdoor exercise.

HCP continues to reach out and assist with horticultural initiatives within the larger community. The Pacific Horticulture College educations industry horticulturists, HCP partners with Saanich in upgrading and maintaining Outerbridge Park, and our Community Education is always current with gardening and environmental trends.

In 2016, the Gardens see a committed and hardworking staff continue to guide the Gardens through a period of transition and rejuvenation. One of the planned projects starting within the Gardens this year if funds allow is the redevelopment of the front entry, which will emphasize a more welcoming feel, clearer signage, improved barrier-free access, and the replacement of an aging perimeter fence.

The Gardens are a non-profit entity.  The staff, volunteers, and students manage to work wonders with a very modest budget which is always stretched to its limit.  Without the ongoing generosity of the many donors who have supported the HCP, it would not have been possible to create the gardens we see today. This support has been huge and is gratefully acknowledged by all. At this time we also hope that some people will support these cherished gardens with a donation, whatever is manageable, be it large or small. Together it makes a big difference. All donations are eligible for a tax receipt.

We are very grateful to those who give their time and knowledge. This physical contribution is just as important and as highly acknowledged as a financial contribution. The HCP can’t thank you enough.

To be in a garden is to feel peace within one’s heart and to share that peace is a blessing. Happy Gardening to everyone and a sincere thank you for any support that you can provide this year physically or financially to the Gardens at the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific: the local hub for Horticultural Excellence.
