Gardens on the Go

Hi! I'm Connie Kuramoto and I have been working in the Horticulture Industry for over 40 years. I have sold flowers, delivered garden services, managed greenhouses and market gardens, and currently run a Horticulture Training and Service Company called Gardens on the Go. My education includes training in Botany through the University of Massachusetts, and a Diploma in Greenhouse Horticulture Technology from Malaspina College, now Vancouver Island University. I was hired to teach at Vancouver Island University in their Horticulture Department , and to act as their greenhouse technician in 1989, and continued to work there for over twenty years I taught Horticulture Skills and Practices and coordinated student activities in the 10,000 Square foot Commercially run greenhouse. When I retired from the University in 2008, I formed my company, and I now teach on contract for North Island College, Gaia College, and VIU. I also offer garden consulting, and pruning of trees, shrubs, and roses.

I am also pleased to offer Horticultural Training Workshops throughout the Vancouver Island Area. I am excited to offer a series of classes this year at the Doighouse Earthship Build and Education Center in Qualicum Bay, as well as a private location in Yellowpoint. I hope to see you there!

Sorry, there are no upcoming events
