About Us

 

Monthly Meetings

Meetings are usually held on the third Thursday of the months March through November. Meetings are not held in December, January & February.

See meetings for dates and details. Meetings begin at 7:30 pm and end about 9 pm.

We meet at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 322, at 111 Hunt Street in Ajax, in the Upper Club Room.
We have speakers on subjects as diverse as water gardening, growing roses, clematis, alternatives to herbicides and pesticides, and floral design.

Members may participate in a flower show judged by master gardeners and guest judges. Ribbons are awarded for all categories. It's a good way to learn more about showing and presenting your flowers and plants and it's fun!

 

“Club Seeds”

This is a new program for the Ajax Garden Club. Thanks to the Uxbridge Horticultural Society for the idea and for their advice about how to get started. Their program has been running for over twenty years and is very popular. The Ajax Garden Club seeds are available to members when they receive their yearbooks.

The seeds are all rated as “easy to grow.” This yearʼs selections are:

Zinnia: “State Fair Mixed” (Annual flower)

Basil: “Nufar YR” variety (Annual herb)

Swiss Chard: “Bright Lights” (Annual vegetable)

More information about these plants will be provided with the seeds. The show schedules for 2014 include classes specifically for plants grown from the “Club Seeds. ”

Public Plantings

We strive to make a difference in our community by creating opportunities to learn and by organizing voluntary planting sessions in various public places. We have planted and maintained gardens at the Royal Canadian Legion, at St. Paul's United Church on Kings Crescent, and at St Timothy's Presbyterian Church on Burcher Rd.



Community Events and Services

The Ajax Garden Club participates in community events such as the "Ajax in Bloom" Garden Competition and the "Festival of Trees" in support of the Ajax and Pickering Health Centre. Also the Ajax Garden Club has made several donations to the community including park benches, wreaths, and plants.

Please take this opportunity to browse through our site and explore the benefits of becoming a member of the Ajax Garden Club.
