The Wasaga Beach Garden Club was established in 1997.  In 2013 we were incorporated as a Horticultural Society under OMAFRA. We then joined the OHA.

The mission of the Wasaga Beach Garden Club shall be to provide leadership and assist in the promotion of education and interest in all areas of horticulture and related environmental issues, dedicated to the beautification of our community, through the expanded network of the Ontario Horticultural Association.

In 2013 some members of the Wasaga Beach Garden Club along with representatives from the Parks Facilities and Recreation Department, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit and the South Georgian Bay Community Health Centre successfully created Wasaga Beach's first Community Garden. 

* Annual events include a Plant Sale in May, A Container Contest and a Garden Tour *

Our events include monthly educational speakers and demonstrations as well as periodic outings and an annual picnic, potluck dinner and a Christmas dinner. Recent speakers at our meetings have been Paul Zammit; speaking about container gardening and Marilyn Ruyter who decorated three wonderful Christmas buffet tables for us.

Membership ; $20 for the first year, $10 for every additional year
