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.

Speaker of the Month
Our speaker for October is Diane Cortlett of Lochland Botanicals.
Lochland is a family run Herb and Flower farm in Halton dedicated to creating a space and products that help people reconnect with the land, and with themselves. The farm’s 93 acres contains over 40,000 organically grown plants, including more than 140 different species.
In addition to garden tours the farm offers toxin free, artisanal herbal and floral products for culinary, cosmetic, and wellness purposes, as well as meditation and yoga classes to heal the body and mind.
Diane will speak about their journey from the beginning, to where the farm is now.
