St. George Garden Club

District 6

About Us

Welcome to the St. George Garden Club website! Our society has approximately 90+ members of all ages, with a wide variety of experience levels. Our meetings are usually educational with a speaker, and we also have the four floral competitions annually.

Our meetings are composed of speakers, field trips, workshops and also a strawberry social in early July and a garden party in August. In early December we have our annual meeting. Both the garden party and the annual meeting are pot luck dinners. We try to keep things light and fun.....as each meeting ends with a door prize draw.

We offer a $1,000.00 grant each year to a Brant County secondary school student who is going on to post secondary studies in horticulture, agriculture or environmental studies.

Our mission is to encourage interest and improvement in horticulture:
By holding meetings with an instructional value on subjects connected with the theory and practice of horticulture
By encouraging the improvement of private and public grounds
By giving awards and scholarships
By distribution of plants, bulbs and flowers
By promoting the circulation of horticultural information
By promoting gardening activities with children and youth
