Welcome to the Streetsville Horticultural Society

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.

Next meeting: Tuesday, June 14, 2016
