Brantford Garden Club
Welcome to the Brantford Garden Club!
The Brantford Garden Club was founded in 1852 and is the oldest horticultural society in the province.
Its objectives are to encourage an interest in horticulture and to promote the protection of the environment.
The Club's emblem is the daffodil which resembles the telephone invented by Alexander Graham
Bell in Brantford.
Millennium Scholarship Program started in 2000 to encourage and assist qualifying students to study horticulture at the college, university or apprenticeship program level.
