Welcome to the Garden Club of Kitchener Waterloo
To encourage an active interest in all subjects pertaining to the cultivation and use of flowers and plants.
The Garden Club of Kitchener - Waterloo is a non Profit Group formed by 12 members in 1957. We will celebrate our 60th Anniversary in 2017. The Kitchener - Waterloo chapter is one of the member clubs that form the Garden Clubs of Ontario.
Our home base is our own portable classroom-studio on the University of Waterloo grounds where small group meetings are held and courses, seminars and workshops are given relating to Floral Design and Horticultural topics.
Since 1967 we have held bi-annual Flower Shows, open to the public, to highlight our interests and skills in floral design and horticulture. Recent shows have been held at Grey Silo Golf Club in Waterloo, Renison University College in Waterloo and the Pavilion at Victoria Park in Kitchener.
Our members enjoy other Garden Club shows such as "Canada Blooms", the Royal Botanical Gardens, and tours of public and private gardens in Southern Ontario.
Our Plant Sales:
Every year in May, on the Saturday before Mother's Day, a plant sale is held by the members of the Garden Club with plants donated from their gardens.
Civic and Conservation:
Betty's Garden - An entrance garden was established in 1994 at KidsAbility in Waterloo and dedicated in 1996 in memory of Past President Betty Stuart. Betty's Garden has grown as a living tribute to be enjoyed by all throughout the years. This garden receives constant tender, loving maintenance from our members.
We meet on the third Monday of each month from September to June. If the third Monday happens to fall on a holiday the following Monday is used to meet. Meeting Times: 1:15 pm
Meeting Location: Albert McCormick Arena in Waterloo.
AGM Date: Third Monday in June
Club Shows: Mini Shows are held usually twice a year and a Club Show is held every other year alternating between Spring and Fall. Email us for more information.

In August of this year, eight of our members attended a tour of "Gardens and Estates of the Hudson River Valley" in New York state. We visited three private gardens which were absolutely divine & eight Estate gardens which were overwhelming. It was a wonderful learning experience, a time to make new friends and a gardener's delight.
