777 Lawrence Avenue East, Toronto, Ontario

The Garden Club of Toronto celebrates 70 years in 2017

Our Vision
Sharing the wonder of Nature through Education, Engagement and Creativity

Our Mission
Volunteers inspiring our community through a focus on floral artistry and horticulture with a commitment to education and charitable initiatives

Our Aims

  • To stimulate a knowledge and love of gardening amongst amateurs
  • To aid in the production of native plants, trees, birds and soil
  • To take an interest in civic planting

The Garden Club of Toronto is a registered charity. Our three hundred members have raised funds and given unmeasurable volunteer hours to support big and small garden projects in the city of Toronto since 1947. Some of our projects are June Callwood Park, Highway of Heroes Living Tribute, The Teaching Garden and Entrance Gardens at the Toronto Botanical Garden, The San Romanoway Pollinator Garden and the St. Jamestown Mosaic Garden.

Started in 1955, our program to give out yearly scholarships has helped many postsecondary students enrolled in garden-related programs. We also focus on Floral Design and Horticulture and hold seven standard Flower Shows a year, our biggest being at Canada Blooms. Our collaboration with Landscape Ontario to form Canada Blooms 21 years ago created an ongoing opportunity for professionals and amateurs to work together to educate and engage the public in all things Garden related.

Our dedicated and creative members look forward to the next 70 years and many future garden projects.
