SOMETHING FOR EVERY TASTE AND TALENT  

The Garden Club of London members formally meet from September through June for a wide variety of programs, events and activities with some activities continuing throughout the summer.

Almost all meetings, workshops, courses and events are held at the Civic Garden Complex at 625 Springbank Drive, west of Wonderland Road South 

GENERAL MEETINGS

  • The Club usually meets the third Wednesday afternoon of the month as members gather for General Meetings
  • Following a brief business meeting, a program is presented that reflects the interests of the Club in Design and Horticulture. It is truly a fun and interesting experience

 HORTICULTURE MEETINGS

  • The fourth Wednesday afternoon is dedicated to Horticulture interests for the months of September to November and January to May
  • Horticulture field trips are also organized for all members interested in many aspects of the science
  • Our Horticulture groups grow herbs and make herbal products to share with the public at the Fall Boutique e.g. jams, jellies, vinegars, pot-pourri, sauces, packaged herbs and mixes
  • Our Woodland volunteers are working at restoring approximately 1 hectare of Springbank Park to a Carolinian Forest
  • Another small area of the park has been accepted as a challenge for the Garden Club of London to develop into an inviting area for the public to visit. It is north of the Maurice Chapman pathway and will include some land art and include assets that will pique the interest of the public

STUDIO ACTIVITIES
