At a young age I learned the importance of gardening and began to understand that being a gardener is more than a hobby it is a way of life.  My family encouraged my thirst for gardening by building my first greenhouse when I was still in early grade school.  

In the mid 80’s my mother and I joined the Langley Garden Club. It was great to find a place where people could share their love and passion for gardening.  When it came time for university my passion for plants pushed me into a major in microbiology with a minor in botany.

Now it has been over 26 years at Van Noort Bulb and I have worked all the way up to Marketing and Marketing and Packaging Manger.  I am truly blessed to be able to work in an environment where my gardening passion is encouraged and allowed to grow.

Giving Back to the Community

SDGC's purpose is to promote the love of gardening, to protection and conservation of native trees, plants, and wildlife, and to work for the beautification of South Delta.

We actively maintain 3 public gardens to showcase our efforts.  Members volunteer their time and plants, twice weekly.  It's a friendly way to meet other members.  We share our knowledge and skills while maintaining these gardens.

Each garden has a lead gardener to coordinate efforts.  Join us; have fun digging in the dirt and learn as you go.
