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.
The Leaside Garden Society is offering one $1,000 (CDN) scholarship annually to a full time post-secondary student planning to enroll in the second, third or final year of a horticulture-related program from an accredited Canadian college or university.
