VIU Milner Gardens and Woodland

About Milner Gardens and Woodland Society

In 1998 a small advisory group was formed to provide advice and support to the Executive Director of the Gardens.  This group helped to look at the challenges and opportunities of taking the private gardens and converting them to a public garden.  The group evolved, and in 2000 Milner Gardens and Woodland Society was officially incorporated under the Society Act.  In early 2001 it became a registered charity.  The Society was “closed” with members being appointed according to their positions within the University, or as invited members of the community.  The Society Board provided advice and feedback to the Executive Director of the Gardens and members of the University’s Administration, as well as financial support for the Gardens through fundraising efforts.

Milner Gardens and Woodland Society is now growing again.  At a meeting of the Board of Directors held March 10, 2009, a resolution was approved to change the bylaws of the Society to open membership to anyone 18 years of age or older who purchases a membership to Milner Gardens & Woodland.
