Meetings

Our next meeting will be on Thursday, January 10, 2019, and will feature Jode Roberts speaking about Homegrown National Park Project, in which, a group of volunteer “park rangers” have been turning local yards and public spaces into a giant urban park.

The Leaside Garden Society meets nine times each year for friendly and informative sessions on gardening topics. Meetings are usually held on the second Thursday of the month, at the Leaside Library, 165 McRae Drive, and begin at 7:30 p.m. Refreshments are available prior to the meeting, beginning at 7:00 p.m.

As well as our Annual Show in September, flower shows are also held at our February meeting and on the day of our annual garden tour in June.

Our meetings also include refreshments and a social time.

Yearly membership is $25 single, $30 family. Guests are always welcome.
