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.

A Geranium, by any other name ... Is a Pelargonium
by Barbara Puchala
For centuries, we’ve been calling them geraniums, ever since 1753 when the Swedish botanist, Carl Linnaeus started botanical nomenclature by classifying plants. He described 20 pelargoniums in his publication. It was assumed that these plants were all geraniums and so they were placed under the genus geranium.
