St. George Garden Club
Welcome to the St. George Garden Club! Our club has approximately 90 members and within that membership we have a range of ages and experience.
Our membership meetings are composed of guest speakers, floral competitions and social time. We often include field trips and workshops over the course of the year as well. It's very important to the clubs executive that we keep our membership engaged.
Our annual meeting is held at our Christmas dinner at which time we have a catered meal, games and door prizes. We also take this time to recognize those members who have gone above and beyond.
We offer a $1,000.00 grant each year to a Brant County secondary school student who is going on to post secondary studies in horticulture, agriculture or environmental studies.
Our mission is to encourage interest and improvement in horticulture:
By holding meetings with an instructional value on subjects connected with the theory and practice of horticulture
By encouraging the improvement of private and public grounds
By giving awards and scholarships
By distribution of plants, bulbs and flowers
By promoting the circulation of horticultural information
By promoting gardening activities with children and youth
