Learn from some of Vancouver’s finest local creators in a variety of categories, including, Dried by Design, Blim, & Plantsome. Create your very own dried floral bouquet, build your own terrarium, and more! Choose your workshop and reserve your spot online directly with each vendor.
Take It or Leaf It
Over the last few years some people adopted puppies and others chose plants. What some don’t realize is that plants need almost as much care as that puppy and Vancouver-based plant company Plantsome is here to help. Showgowers will have the chance to walk through four vignettes featuring plants to learn which ones are pet-friendly, easy to care for, big and leafy and have a splash of colour. Wherever your interests lie, you’re certain to walk away with ideas to help keep your home looking like an urban jungle, and maybe even add another plant or two. You’ll find advice and plants galore– you can Take It or Leaf It!
Keep calm and picnic on with a stop at The Eatery presented by Midland Appliance, designed by PIC your NIC. When you have worked up an appetite from all of the design inspiration, enjoy the ultimate picnic experience inspired by the beauty of BC right on the Show floor. Snack on locally-sourced food delights while sipping on a crisp glass of BC wine or cider. All that’s required of you is to sit back and relax with your drink in hand - maybe you’ll even be inspired to stay for another round or two.
