Secret Garden believes in the importance of supporting our local community. One way we give back is to sponsor two Little League teams in our neighborhood of Kerrisdale, in Vancouver. At the start of this season, the coach of the Major B team (pictured above) assured us, “We won’t let the Secret Garden down!”
Tea and baseball might not seem like a likely combination, but we think it’s all part of being part of a communi-tea!

At The Secret Garden we enjoy so many teas from India. Sponsoring students is one way we can give back to this amazing country. Since 2006, we have sponsored students through a local charity called HUGGS Canada, a nonprofit dedicated to helping low-income students in India receive education.
Once we sent a sweater to one of our sponsored students, Krishnaveni (pictured above). She wrote, “My dear Kathy Auntie and Erin Auntie, Thank you very much [for the sweater] and when ever I wear that sweater I feel as you are hugging me… I have joined St. Joseph’s college. The college is very nice… I and my family members are very thankful to you for giving me this opportunity.”
Thanks to HUGGS Canada, Krishnaveni received a teaching degree and is now helping other children in India learn vital skills. We’re very grateful to help students like KrishnaVeni grow and flourish!
