    My reason for posting is to find a person or group who will be financially able to take over a property up here that is as close to a botanical garden that I've ever seen. It is an old homestead and the owner spent several years training at Kew Gardens then returned to shape their own collection of rare and species Rhodos, trees and shrubs from around the world. The list is quite extensive and I will email it or post it if the moderator permits. The other half of this 5+ acres is second growth cedar and firs that are untouched since the fires of 1905. The reason I'm posting here is that this property is subdividable and a small group of like-minded conservationist gardening enthusiasts could each end up with a large acreage of the quality you may never see again, if they were to enter a group purchase. Alternately, a single philanthropic initiative would also serve the ultimate purpose of protecting and nurturing this rare parcel. It is located in Roberts Creek and is twenty minutes from the ferry. Please email me if you are interested. mike_carson@sunshine.net

    Hello Mike,

    Please feel free to post the list of plants. A number of garden members, forum members and UBC Botanical Garden Friends of the Garden live on the Sunshine Coast - in fact, I visited one of the FOGs in Roberts Creek just last week! I'm glad to see an interest in preserving the property, and I know some people who would be interested to hear about it.
