Hi my name is Brianne Holden and I’m the new Head Gardener at Marine Drive Golf Club. I live in Vancouver, BC. I was born in Edmonton Alberta and lived there until the age of 21 when I decided to make the move to beautiful British Columbia. Two years later I decided to pursue a career in horticulture, a pastime I have always enjoyed as my Mom is an avid gardener. I studied at Kwantlen Polytechnic University where I received a Horticulture Diploma in Landscape Installation and Design.
Outside of my own life long garden experience, I have also worked for two landscaping companies in the Lower Mainland. The focus of my work has been garden maintenance and restoration as well as landscape design and soft-scape installation. I enjoy the design aspect of horticulture the most, especially container plantings which I have spent this season focusing on. I am a firm believer in permaculture practices which I try to include in all my design work. I’m looking forward to enhancing the health and beauty of the gardens at Marine Drive Golf Club. Feel free to come over and say hi anytime.
I am always happy to answer any questions you might have.
