Nanaimo Gardening Spring Festival

On March 9-10-11, 2007, the Central Vancouver Island Botanical Garden Society will present its 12th annual Spring Festival, A Celebration of Island Gardening, at the Beban Park Recreation Centre, 2300 Bowen Road, Nanaimo. The displays will be open from 1 to 6 pm on Friday and from 9:30 am to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday. General admission is $5 per day or $12 for all three days.

Exhibitors at the 2006 show included Milner Gardens and Woodland in Qualicum Beach, the Nanaimo Area Land Trust, Gardenade from Salmon Arm, BC, Scott Wiskerke's Roots and Shoots, the BC Landscape and Nursery Association from Surrey, BC, Nanaimo's Backyard Wildbird and Nature Store, and many others.

You'll get the chance to see and buy a wide range of plants, and all of the exhibitors will have staff available to answer questions and offer advice. Guest speakers will give informative lectures on topics of interest to home gardeners. The CVIBGS's Spring Festival is always a lot of fun. Friday night from 6:30 to 9:30 pm there's a special wine tasting event which costs $5 to attend.
