We’re hosting the biennial Vancouver Island Herb Gathering this weekend

Innisfree is a nature oasis with a mission.

Located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, we are an internationally registered Botanic Garden and a herbal farm where we teach about herbal medicine, health, Shinrin Yoku (forest bathing), and biophilia with a view to heal and reconnect people to nature. We showcase medicinal and food plants and educate about native plants and conservation with an array of classes and workshops, and other programs.

We have an extensive collection of medicinal plants, a café, a dispensary making herbal teas and other preparations, and gardens of culinary herbs, vegetables and berries.  

Come visit us to explore the gardens, purchase some plants, and enjoy our café when we’re open to the public in the summer.
