Membership is open to all Horticulture and Floral Arts and Design organizations in British Columbia. This includes garden clubs, floral art clubs, community gardens, allotment gardens, and friends of the gardens groups. If you are not sure if your group qualifies for membership, please contact membership for clarification.

Affiliation Fee

The annual affiliated member fee is $37 per year (January 1 to December 31). Fees are not pro-rated.

Affiliation renewal notices are sent out to existing member clubs in the fall along with any notification of changes in fees. Any fees changes require approval by the membership at the Annual General Meeting in March and do not take effect until the next membership cycle.

To have a vote at the BC Council of Garden Clubs at the AGM or the Fall meeting, an organization must be in good standing at the time of the meeting.

Liability Insurance Fee

Does your organization have basic Liability Insurance for its meetings and events? We offer optional Liability Insurance to our member clubs. The basic Liability Insurance fee is 1.00 per member per year.

Liability Insurance coverage is for the period March 1 – to March 1. Fees are not pro-rated, and payment for the insurance is required at the time of membership renewal – this ensures that clubs do not fall in breach of their insurance due to late payments.

If you are meeting in public venues (church hall, community centre, etc.) it is a good idea to check with the facility regarding their requirement for insurance.
