Lake Simcoe Gardeners

District 5

About Us

Our garden club, which formed in 1973, is dedicated to the promotion of gardening activities in our community. We welcome members of all ages to participate in the many activities, meetings, tours, plant sales, shows and social events we organize. We assist with a number of Town plantings and have planted many trees in our community. We offer an annual bursary to students pursuing their career in the horticultural or environmental field. We also provide 'Plant your own Garden' food boxes to the local Food Pantry.
