The SCCF Legacy Fund was created in February 2014 by the Sunshine Coast Community Forest and its shareholder, the District of Sechelt, to help finance long term projects which will benefit all residents of the lower Sunshine Coast. Recently a legacy fund award was presented to the Sunshine Coast Botanical Garden Society. They were granted $37,350 to build bridges and boardwalks which will provide access to a new Pond/Wetland Garden, expected to open in Summer 2015. The non-profit Garden is in its sixth year of operation with new garden areas being planted each year. This grant provides public access to a new pond, a key element of the Native Plant Garden. Here are featured plants of our unique ecosystems also including Rainforest, Rain Shadow, and Subalpine regions. School classes, gardeners, tourists and the general public will all enjoy these areas. It is an honour for the Community Forest to assist the Garden Society with their community project and we encourage any community group, public sector agency or non-profit organization to submit an application for funding to help make your dream a reality. Please visit our Legacy Fund page to learn more about the Legacy Fund and to obtain an application form.
