About Us

Located in Simcoe County, we are a diverse district with 18 Societies and Garden Clubs that have experience gardening in some of the difficult climates our region experiences. All of our Societies and Garden Clubs are welcoming, knowledgeable and best of all, enjoy having fun while learning!
At the present time, all Societies and Garden Club in-person meetings are on a Pause due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, however, meetings on the ZOOM platform are ongoing. We feel this is the responsible course of action and required by the Simcoe Muskoka and District Health Unit to protect our members and communities from this deadly virus.

As the Province begins to open up, towards the summer of 2021, Societies and Clubs may start scheduling in-person events. Please contact the individual Societies or District 16 if you have questions about future meetings and events, or send us an email to gardenontariod16@gmail.com and we’ll help you find out the information you are looking for.
