Get Ready for Spring at Inspiration Garden


It may still be February, but signs of spring are already popping up around the Tri-Cities. This means that it’s time to start thinking ahead to the gardening season. If you’d like to get growing in 2015, you can get off to a great start with these upcoming events and workshops for all ages at Coquitlam’s Inspiration Garden. Or you can drop by the garden on the corner of Guildford Way and Pipeline Road in Town Centre Park anytime to see what’s happening.
