Leaside Garden Society
Founded in 1986, The Leaside Garden Society's mission is to establish a friendly meeting place to share, encourage, award and educate on the fundamental values and principles of gardening, concerns about the environment, and to create a horticultural legacy within the community and to be to be an inspiration for gardening everywhere.
This year, due to the COVID-19 situation, we were unable to hold our Magical Gardens of Leaside garden tour in June. But that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy the gardens of Leaside. This year, we present our first ever virtual garden tour - delightful 20 minutes of peeking at the gardens of many members of the Leaside Garden Society. Relax and enjoy the gardens with a cup of tea or coffee or better still a glass of wine or beer! You will not be disappointed so just click on the link below and enjoy.
