2021 Events & Activities
Well, the nutshell version is that, due to Covid-19, we’ve put group events on-hold for the year, and the SPCA has opted to take a year off from Pet Photos with Santa. It’s a bummer, we know, but we’re preferring to err on the side of caution and looking forward to brighter days ahead! To keep up-to-date with what’s happening in-store and to learn a few gardening tips and tricks each season, we invite you to join our newsletter email list (we send out a blog twice monthly… visit our Resources page to see our most recent postings) and/or to follow us on Instagram or Facebook! Thank you for your understanding everyone… we’ll all get through this together!
Holiday Photo Ops
November 18 – December 24, 2021
Bring your friends and family and your camera and grab a few shots for the season! We will be hanging our photo ops throughout the Seasonal Plant Department for folks to make use of, at no charge (during store hours). Perfect for those making their own holiday cards!
Chilliwack Hospice Celebrate a Life Tree
December 1-23, 2021
Remember loved ones who have passed and support the Chilliwack Hospice Society by hanging a butterfly on their tree of celebration (butterflies are by donation). Volunteers from the Chilliwack Hospice Society will be here during select hours December 1-23, and they will be located in the Tropical Department. There’s a lot of local love out there this year, and it would be wonderful if you could make it down and share your support this season—thank you!
Miniature Village and Train Display
December 1-24, 2021
Our team members, along with Brent Sutton and his crew, will be setting up ‘Snowville’, our miniature village display, along with the model train in the Seasonal Plant Department this year! The display can be viewed during store hours.

Visit with Santa!
December 18-19, 2021
We are thrilled to welcome Santa Claus to the garden center this weekend, from 1-3pm each day! Santa will be sitting in a special area in the Seasonal Plant Department so that folks can talk with him at a safe distance (sorry, no photos with Santa this year). He would love for you to come by and say hello!
Kid’s Seasonal Scavenger Hunt
December 18-24, 2021
Back this year! Pick up a form and a pencil, search high and low for the answers/items throughout the store and earn a goodie-bag prize! All items can be found undercover so this is a fun activity for families, rain (or snow) or shine! Scavenger hunt forms will be available just inside the store entrance. There is no charge to participate. Available during store hours.
*Until further notice private functions are not being booked at the garden center. Thank you for your understanding!* Looking for fresh ideas for you corporate get-together, team building activity or ‘Girls Night Out’? During select times of year we host private planting parties, group-specific seasonal events and we’re open to your ideas too! Our 18-acre property is also an ideal setting for filming and photo shoots. For more information, please contact us!
