Do you love gardening? Are you concerned about Mississauga’s environment?
Whether you are a new gardener looking for support or an experienced one who is willing to share what you know, there is a place for you in Streetsville Horticultural Society. Even gardeners who have moved from homes into apartments and no longer actively garden are most welcome as volunteers.
Our main purpose is to beautify Mississauga through the planting of trees shrubs and flowers. We do this in a variety of ways either by planting them ourselves or assisting others or encouraging others to do it. Our Horticultural Society volunteers are busy each year with local community beautification projects such as the gardens at Leslie Log House, Rotary Park and Leisure World Long-Term Care Home in Streetsville.

Our speaker for the September 11 meeting is Trish Symons, an accomplished horticultural speaker, writer, photographer, judge and instructor. With the hot, dry, summer we have had, many of us are looking for ways to cut back on our water bills while still having a beautiful garden. Trish will present on Xeriscaping: Fad or Necessity incorporating in part, some of the challenges she overcame in establishing gardens on her Hockley Valley farm.
