About Jane Stock

Jane Stock was the Executive Director of the BC Landscape & Nursery Association (BCLNA) from 1996 – 2008, she lost her fight against lymphatic cancer in 2009.

During her 13 hard-working years at BCLNA, she strove for and succeeded in making a difference in the environmental horticulture industry. Jane highly valued horticultural education, training, and skill development, as a way of assuring and asserting professionalism within our industry, and therefore BCLNA's voice and representation for the best that our industry has to offer.  We are privileged to have been guided by Jane's commitment to this ethic.

The Jane Stock Horticultural Foundation

To honor her commitment and dedication to BC’s horticulture industry, the Jane Stock Foundation was started to help make a difference:

  • In the lives of young people and families
    by providing support and resources to child-focused horticultural and garden-related efforts.

  • In the lives of young adults
    by providing scholarships to those embarking in post-secondary education

  • In the community and the wider environment
    through worthy horticulture and garden-related pursuits.
