Societies in Ontario
Georgina-Brock Garden Club
Georgina-Brock Garden Club is a friendly group of small town and country-dwelling gardeners. Our horticultural society got its start back in 1959 and ever since has been the local neighbourhood garden club servicing rural residents and small communities along the York-Durham border, namely Pefferlaw, Wilfrid, Udora, Port Bolster, and Sunderland.
We have an active and vibrant garden club, hosting monthly meetings on the 2nd Monday of the months of March, April, June, July, September, October and November. We hold four flower, vegetable & design shows each year. May is our annual Plant Sale and December is our AGM. Our meetings feature informative and entertaining speakers and you can always count on friendly interaction with fellow gardeners. Never a charge for guests and new members may join anytime.
