Van Belle Nursery documentary highlights 50 years of growing

Van Belle Nursery offered its heartfelt thanks to the industry, staff and partners for 50 years in business with a self-produced documentary and Christmas message.

Van Belle is a family owned and operated wholesale nursery and propagation partner started in 1973 by founders Bill and Grace Van Belle in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada.

“We’re so thankful for our partners from across the industry and also our internal partners, our team of dedicated staff because we wouldn’t be here without them,” Dave Van Belle, president, said. “It’s the people and relationships you build over the years that’s most important at the end of the day, and we’re reflecting on this more than ever while celebrating our 50th anniversary together.”
