Upcoming Meetings/Events Below↓ 2023
The core of our Society is our 'monthly' meeting, normally held on the second Wednesday of March, April, May, June, September, October and November at Northside United Church.
The Meetings begin at 7:00pm in the basement, and normally feature a qualified speaker on a topic of general horticultural interest. Refreshments are served afterwards, and we all bring our own mugs to reduce garbage. The March meeting normally features a potluck supper, and November's meeting features a catered banquet at a reasonable cost. In July we usually beat the heat by going on an air conditioned bus tour, and in August we do a more local garden tour followed by 'dessert'. Of course all of our gatherings are subject to the current Covid Public Health Guidelines.
Membership is still only $10.00 per year, and includes a yearbook and discounts on the banquet and bus trip, eligibility to post on this site and enter the photo contest, as well as discounts at participating garden suppliers. New members are always welcome, and you may come to a meeting with no pressure to join, so feel free to check us out!
