    The G. R. Paine Horticultural Training Centre is located at 2324 East Wellington Road, in Nanaimo, BC. To reach the centre, turn from the Nanaimo Parkway onto Jinglepot Road (Jinglepot Intersection near the main VIU campus, not the Jinglepot/Mostar intersection). Follow Jinglepot Road to Holland Road. Turn right onto Holland and continue until you reach East Wellington Road, then turn left. The Horticulture Training Centre is directly across from the Unity Church. There is a G.R. Paine Horticulture Centre sign at our driveway.
