Hosted by the Vancouver Japanese Gardeners’ Association (VJGA)

This Non-Profit Organization established in 1959, was created to establish social status for Japanese gardeners and landscapers active in the Lower Mainland. The underlying concept was and is to help foster friendships through sports and culture, as well as to contribute to the local society through experience and applied research. The Membership has so far built five Japanese gardens in various locations as that fulfill a space for tranquility, exhilaration, cultural awareness and above all to sustain a landscape of harmony for the community.

Sponsored by the West Coast Gardeners Co-op of B.C.

The West Coast Gardeners Co-op was established in 1981 in the main floor of the VJGA building where they handle repairs of gardening machinery, sales of machinery and garden supplies for members.
