SSGC - April meeting

Our April speakers are Hayne Wai and Bob Willmott.

Topic - Introducing the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. 

Master Gardeners Hayne Wai and Bob Wilmott will provide a presentation on the Dr. Sun Yat–Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver’s Chinatown. This Ming dynasty–style garden, which opened in 1986, was the first full Chinese garden ever built outside of China. Their 45 minute presentation will introduce the essential elements of a Chinese garden and walk through the halls, courtyards, and corridors — with particular reference to plants, shrubs, and trees, and their appropriate maintenance to reflect a classical Ming dynasty elegance.

Bob is a veteran Master Gardener (1999), garden designer and board member of the Dr. Sun Yat– Sen Classical Chinese Garden Society.

Hayne is a more recent Master Gardener (2013), served on the garden's board and continues as a docent. He is a past president of the Chinese Canadian Historical Society of BC.
