At Petals N Buds, we believe in the power of community and that involves working together. We feel this lays a strong foundation for people to live happier, more successful lives.
In the spirit of building better communities, Petals N Buds sponsors thematic campaigns to support specific organizations. We are proud to introduce our current campaign, Let’s talk About Pumpkins.
LET’S TALK ABOUT PUMPKINS!
Let’s Talk About Pumpkins is a community awareness campaign that provides financial assistance for two major organizations: The Mustard Seed and The BC Cancer Foundation.
Cancer and poverty results in devastation for all the lives it affects. So many are impacted mentally, physically, and socially by these misfortunes and we feel it's our job to do what we can to help.
Let's Talk About Pumpkins is just one way you can contribute. We create beautiful floral displays in a decorative pumpkin and donate the earnings to these foundations.

Strong organizations such as The Royal Canadian Legion play a key role in building happy and healthy communities.
We have chosen to support the Royal Canadian Legion Poppy Campaign by purchasing hundreds of poppies each year and attaching them to all our designs before delivery from November 1 leading up to the Remembrance Day ceremony.
Tara Koshman Associate Member of the Royal Canadian Legion. Both Grandparents worked loyally in the Air force during WWII and shared their stories with me growing up. So, the Royal Canadian Legions Poppy Campaign is particularly meaningful to her.
Wearing a Poppy November 1 – 11th serves to remind and teach generations that, “…great effort and sacrifice is required so that we live and lead healthy, free lives.”
To this day, our Canadian troops protect our nation every day oversees. The Royal Canadian Legion who support our Military, Navy and Airforce members and their families is a worthy recipient.
