Stoney Creek Garden Club & Horticultural Society
Welcome to the Stoney Creek Garden Club & Horticultural Society
The Stoney Creek Garden Club & Horticultural Society currently serves members from Hamilton, Stoney Creek and surrounding areas. The Society is an affiliate of the Ontario Horticultural Association, District Six, a Carolinian District.
Knowledgeable guest speakers are featured at monthly meetings and a competitive Flower Show is held in June. Our February meeting hosts a Silent/Live Auction. Our popular Annual Plant Sale takes place on the Saturday of the May Long weekend .
In 2010, the Society renovated the Royal Canadian Legion Hall's two gardens facing Stoney Creek's King Street under the guidance of one of its talented members. See Legion Garden for story and pictures. The garden is still being tended to by Stoney Creek Garden Club members, who also care for the gardens at Saltfleet Library.
For the past three years, the Society has awarded a bursary to a Saltfleet High School student enrolled in its Horticultural program.

She will also touch on using herbs in cooking.
Originally completing a Chemical Engineering and Management degree at McMaster University, Elizabeth’s interest in culinary and medicinal plants became a hobby that eventually led to more education.
