President Chris Stansfield became connected with HeroWorks years ago at the outset of this organization during a chance encounter with founder Paul Latour. Garden City has since been involved with six HeroWorks projects since that first chance encounter with Paul. We value our connection with HeroWorks and the important service it provides to the Greater Victoria community.
Garden City Tree & Landscape has ties to the Saanich Peninsula so it only made sense that we would help with this upcoming revitalization of the little league park which will benefit youth for years to come. We provided the landscaping for the batting cage in 2019.
In 2016, Garden City Tree & Landscape heard about the theft of the Parent Association funds that had been earmarked for a new playground. Owners, Chris and Colin, immediately sat down to see how they could assist. They decided to offer to build a new playground for the school. This was a major contribution that exceeded $75,000.00 and they did with pride and for the kids! This playground includes teepee style gazebos and slides that look like part of the landscape. The layout of the playground and substantially increased the whole outside play area for the students.
Vice President Colin Eaton received support from Help Fill a Dream back in 2014 when his son Eric was born with a critical heart condition. Since then Garden City Tree & Landscape has continued to support this amazing organization through participating in the ‘Take it to the Street’ floor hockey tournament sponsored by Seaside Times.
Located in Colwood, Metchosin and Langford Communities, this basketball club operates six girl’s teams at four grade levels. A worthy club that is assisting girls to grow up to be positive members of the community.
The rural community of Metchosin has a very active community association that runs an annual silent auction and fundraiser. We donate products such as our organic mulch to this event.
Garden City Tree & Landscape provides employment support to people using the services of WorkLink BC.
We support the Peninsula Minor Hockey league with an annual donation.
We support the Make a Wish Foundation of Vancouver Island with an annual financial donation.
We support the Victoria Conservatory of Music with an annual financial donation.
