Welcome to the new season of Garden Aurora! Just like our gardens, a garden club is a place to explore, grow, be enthused, provide support and enjoy. Since its establishment in 1918 our society has been dedicated to gardening, environmental preservation and various nature related outreach projects designed to beautify and support Aurora's community. These continue to be core pillars of our operation.
This past year we managed to meet in person for some of our monthly meetings. We also continued community involvement and featured our annual fundraising events. This year's initiatives will include: the much visited Plant Sale (May 28), our renowned Garden Tour (June 25), Gardens of Distinction as well as participating in Canada Day parade and awarding a scholarship to local students (applications open from May 1 to June 30).
We have planned an amazing Speaker Program for our members where they will be exchanging knowledge, learning about their gardens and how to remain active and having fun (guests are welcome!!!). Our February and March member meetings will be via Zoom to avoid possible unsafe weather conditions and the first in person meeting will be in April at Royal Canadian Legion, 105 Industrial Parkway North, Aurora, lower level (enter through the doors located at the back of the building).
Our members are an amazing group, supporting their board of directors, and always ready to help and volunteer for our many initiatives. Active members are the key to success!! Thanks to all our garden club members for all that you do for our club and our community!
With much appreciation, your board.
Garden Aurora is a member of the Ontario Horticultural Association.
