Welcome to our climate corner! The intention of this space is to empower and enlighten the way we see gardening with new possibilities. Here at Hunters Garden Center, we are passionate about plants and just recently celebrated 70 years in business. We have seen so much change during that time, that we as a company are changing too.

We support over 100 local growers here in greater Vancouver area which not only helps our community but also our carbon footprint. Being as green as possible is something we strive for. We support green! Below we have some initiatives, information, and products that can change the way we interact with green spaces. For example, if your gardening with containers on a balcony, many of these panels were made with you in mind.

If any of our topics pique your interest, more info is just a scan away. Click on any of the green text for more information, helping you deepen your knowledge at your convenience. A small change is better than none.

We hope this corner will inspire you and your garden towards a greener world.
