Vancouver Island
Rock and Alpine Garden Society

VIRAGS is a club of plant lovers living near Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, who visit, study, photograph, draw and grow alpine plants, bog dwellers and woodlanders, whether native or exotic. We encourage the propagation and distribution of plants.

Monthly meetings are the second Tuesday each month from January to June. (This change from the fourth Tuesday will take effect January 2016.) They include a judged parlour show, a talk or workshop, a plant raffle, books to borrow, and time to discuss plants while enjoying refreshments. Visitors are very welcome.

We visit members' gardens and organize wild plant viewing trips.

We have an annual spring show and plant sale, and workshops on propagation and rock garden construction.

The Society, which is perhaps the oldest alpine gardening club, has remained local. Any distant members are ex-Victorians who want to keep up with their friends' activities. We have no publications other than a newsletter for local events.

We are always delighted to welcome visitors. Please contact us if you are going to be on Vancouver Island, even if it is not the day of the monthly meeting.
