The South Burnaby Garden Club annual Fall Harvest Fair September 10-11

The South Burnaby Garden Club has existed since 1901 and this September 10-11 we will continue the tradition of exhibiting to the public the bounty from our members’ gardens, kitchens, and creative activities.

The Bonsor 2nd floor Banquet Hall will be filled end to end with exhibits of vegetables, fruits, baking, canning,
flowers, flower arrangements, crafts, photographs. We will be joined by members of the BC Fuchsia and Begonia Society whose displays will also brighten our exhibit hall.

The potato in a pot judging on Sunday is always a hit. We’ll see if the same family wins AGAIN this year. This year we’ve added RED entries to celebrate the year of the garden, and a 100-mile challenge in our crafts Division in honour of our focus on addressing climate change.

Anyone can enter on Friday evening from 5:00-8:00. It is all completely free. You can see our Schedule on our website at

The mayor has agreed to come award our trophies to the winners in each category and the Best In Show on Sunday afternoon.

Did you know that in the Burnaby South Slope our micro-climate means almost everything we grow is 2 weeks
ahead of our North Burnaby gardens?

The South Burnaby Garden Club was started by a group of Central Park residents who incorporated to form a
Farmer’s Institute. They leased 17 acres of Central Park, and constructed a two-story building that was second to none outside Victoria and New Westminster.
