Monthly meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month, 7:30 pm, at Sir John Colborne Recreation Centre for Seniors, 1565 Old Lakeshore Rd. (south of Lakeshore Rd. W. and east of Third Line).
We meet monthly, except for July and August, to hear speakers on a wide range of current garden and plant topics. Hands-on information is shared in an informal manner between member gardeners at our meetings and events. We also have three Master Gardener members who provide expert information and advice just for the asking.
We hold special events throughout the year – a garden tour of our members’ gardens combined with a BBQ lunch, an annual plant sale in May at South Oakville Centre (Rebecca St. & Third Line), a fun bus tour to interesting garden sites within Southern Ontario, and pot luck dinners and social events. Members may also volunteer to assist us in maintaining the garden at historic Sovereign House, 7 West River Road, in Bronte.
