BC Garden Centres Fitted With Fire Information Hubs

FireSmart BC, an organization that helps build wildfire resiliency and reduce the negative impacts of fire for British Columbia residents, has launched a virtual FireSmart landscaping hub and plant program in over 30 garden centres across the province in an effort to help British Columbians make informed choices about how to manage their lawns and gardens and increase their resilience to wildfire. The hub offers education about fire-resistant vegetation and landscaping practices and features an interactive fire-resistant plants tool, downloadable landscaping guide, and a list of the participating garden centres. The in-store plant program visually shows gardeners which plants are considered more fire-resistant at the point-of-purchase through visible tags and signage.
