Bronte Horticultural Society

Bronte Horticultural Society, established in 1925, is a gardening club for people from across Oakville.  We are a small group with a friendly and supportive social environment. If you have an interest in gardening and want to learn more, you are welcome to join.

We meet monthly, except for July and August, to hear speakers on a wide range of current garden and plant topics. Hands-on information is shared in an informal manner between member gardeners at our meetings and events.  We also have three Master Gardener members who provide expert information and advice just for the asking.

We hold special events throughout the year – a garden tour of our members’ gardens combined with a BBQ lunch, an annual plant sale in May at Bronte Village Mall (Bronte Rd and Lakeshore Rd), a fun bus tour to interesting garden sites within Southern Ontario, and pot luck dinners and social events.  Members may also volunteer to assist us in maintaining the garden at historic Sovereign House, 7 West River Road, in Bronte.

Our members also receive an informative monthly newsletter with updates on gardening events occurring across the GTA and Halton Region, and a monthly column written by a Master Gardener.  Monthly meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month, 7:30 pm, at Sir John Colborne Recreation Centre, Lakeshore Rd and Third Line.  Annual membership fee is only $20 for an individual or $30 for a family group.
