Growers! Register today for the BCLNA's 2023 Integrated Pest Management Workshop Workshop with Mario Lanthier & Guests!

The BC Landscape and Nursery Association (BCLNA) was formed in 1953 and today is a vibrant association with chapters in the Lower Mainland, the Interior, and Vancouver Island. The BCLNA offers member companies leadership support and training, industry information, and services toward the development of more knowledgeable and responsible horticulture practices. Included in its mandate is also business development and issues management for BC's green industry.
