    Hi Tricia – thanks for your email. While we don’t specifically have horticultural courses for retirees, we will be hosting many workshops, tours and special events this spring and summer, so be sure to check the website for something that suits you (we are slowly populating the “Events” section of our website for spring/summer). Have you ever considered becoming a Friend of the Garden? FOGs get to work in the Shop, propagate plants in the Nursery, go on field trips, listen to guest speakers and take part in special tours. It’s a great way to stay involved with the Garden while making lifelong friends who also love gardening. Check out the “Friends of the Garden” page for more information.

    Do you offer a course for retirees looking for the knowledge but perhaps not able to fully participate in the labor…….I have been a home gardener for 50 years and am very aware of my knowledge gaps. I love the botanical gardens at UBC and any time spent there learning and understanding would be time well spent.
