Our History

Since VanDusen Botanical Garden opened to the public in 1975, the Vancouver Botanical Gardens Association (VBGA) has offered educational programs and tours to connect people to plants. Our Mission is to inspire understanding of the vital importance of plants to all life through the excellence of our botanical collections, programs and practices. 

Each year, the VBGA delivers over 150 education and outreach programs to thousands of participants at VanDusen Garden and Bloedel Conservatory. We provide top-notch experiences facilitated and led by some of the most experienced educators, facilitators, gardeners, horticulturists and botanists in Canada.

"The Bloedel Conservatory is an indoor tropical oasis located in the lovely Queen Elizabeth Park that feels like you're in the middle of a rainforest.”
