Note: All 2021 general meetings in Vancouver, usually held in the Cedar Room at VanDusen Gardens, have been cancelled until at least mid-year (see note below). There is no admission charge for meetings (once they resume) and all are welcome. Later meeting dates have been booked for 2021, but these are provisional, dependent on the pandemic situation at the time.

Important notice on Society physical events

As of March 1st, it appears that we will not be able to run physical events until at least the summer, so the March 22nd and May 31st meetings at VanDusen Gardens have been cancelled. In their place, we will hold Zoom meetings! Yes folks, many of us are now adept enough at using this platform to make it viable. An email notice will be sent to all members in the near future concerning the structure and content of both meetings, and we have at least one top notch speaker lined up at this time.

Although social interaction is reduced, there are also advantages. Many members found travel to VanDusen meetings difficult or impossible, so this will be an opportunity to have our wider membership be able to participate. More details will be posted here as they become available.

Hardy Palm International (HPI) issue #106

Our coordinating editor Charlie Warburton is compiling articles for the next issue, possibly ready by mid year. If you have an article that you want to submit, we'd love to hear from you! For details, please email Charlie.

Our Hardypalm website and Facebook pages.

Brian Steven has been working on updating our rudimentary Facebook presence, and it now displays information as well as photos from some of our member's gardens. Click here to go to the page.

Virtual Garden Tour 2021

With the success of last year's virtual tour we anticipate running it again in 2021, likely in mid summer. Pam Murphy's competence at organizing last year's tour means she's coordinating it again in 2021!

Members who wish to particpate should consider taking pictures of their gardens in all seasons, whenever the lighting or interesting events present themselves. More details on the submission process will be sent to members in a future email.
