Working within the safety parameters provided by School Districts 61, 62 and 63, we are pleased to encourage students to safely go outside and stop to count the flowers. Exercising both the brain and encouraging the benefits of our natural environment for mental health, we encourage residents of Greater Victoria to join in this fun event by counting all the flowers they can see. Students and schools are a major part of this counting effort and a prize goes to the winning class.
Calling all Grade 4 & 5 students! See the Greater Victoria Flower Count Information Sheet for reference.

A gift certificate for afternoon tea at The Teahouse at Abkhazi Garden for each student, plus seeds to plant your own flowers for next year’s count. Valued at $60 each student (max. cohort/class size of 28)
