Come join us for the 40th annual Plant Sale at VanDusen Gardens on April 29th! This is our largest event of the year that welcomes nearly 14,000 visitors in a single day! It takes over 400 pairs of volunteer hands to help make such an incredible day happen for our visitors - we truly couldn’t do it without them. Volunteers perform a wide variety of valuable services and roles that help this event run efficiently and effectively!
