Cancelled due to COVID-10 Pandemic


General Information

Meetings are held at Meaden Hall (on Blain Road, across from Greenwoods) the fourth Wednesday of each month (except for December, January, July and August), starting at 6:45 pm, and ending by 9 pm.  In November, we hold our AGM.

  • Every meeting features a speaker. Many are local, but in the past, speakers have come from as far as Australia. Recent speakers have included Brian Minter, Carolyn Herriot, Linda Gilkeson and Bill Terry (the rare Blue Poppy man).
  • A Parlour Show is always held to test our skills in growing local treasures. An annual prize is awarded for highest aggregate points over the year.
  • The Library table is available with an excellent selection of books. Other books are available from the archive and can be retrieved on request.
  • Mentor Gardeners are always present to provide solutions
    for your gardening challenges.
  • Refreshments are available for a dollar (coffee or tea, and a tasty treat).
