About Us

 


Cloverleaf Garden Club of Mississauga has a long distinguished history and is well known for bringing horticulture and gardening knowledge to hundreds of people in the community, through monthly meetings, guest speakers, annual plant sales and annual garden tours. 

It has been a proud member of the Ontario Horticultural Association since 1944.

The club was founded under the guidance of its first President, J.H.L. Morgan Q.C.,  under the name of “Clover Leaf Horticultural Society”. The name was then changed in 1964 to “Cloverleaf Garden Club” and again in 1999 to "Cloverleaf Garden Club of Mississauga". In 2017 “Growing Knowledge” was added to the club's logo.   


The club's floral emblem is the cloverleaf.


Objectives of the Club:

  • To spread the knowledge of horticulture by means of regular meetings, illustrated lectures, and free workshops.
  • To hold exhibitions of flowers, vegetables and decorative arrangements at which all members are encouraged to participate.
  • To encourage the beautification of home and public grounds.
  • To stimulate the interest of our children in gardening and the environment through the Junior Programme.

What is Cloverleaf?

Members, speakers, Flower Show keepers,

Premiums, prizes, lots of surprises,

Yearbook, newsletter couldn’t be better,’

A strawberry social, a Christmas treat,

Garden tours that are really neat.

Library, raffle and on and on.

Membership to which you belong.

A garden speaker we have at each meeting.

New members welcomed with smiles and a greeting.

 

Without our stalwart volunteers,

Cloverleaf would be in arrears.

So that’s what Cloverleaf is about,

And with your help, we’ll have more clout.

So step right up and that means you.

Check your interests and point of view.

We need more people with ideas

To help our Club in future years.
