What members say about the Georgian Bay Garden Club?

Anne Dondertman

I recently moved to Owen Sound and joined the club, because of my love of gardening and previous experience with horticultural societies. This club is very community focussed, as they design and maintain a very large public garden, which is beautifully situated right on Georgian Bay. There is plenty of opportunity to get your hands dirty and do some actual gardening. The members have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share, and there are occasions to socialize as well.
