The Applewood Garden Club of Mississauga Ontario is a small community-based club.

Most members live in south Mississauga–Applewood Acres, Orchard Heights, Sherway Gardens, Clarkson and Port Credit–but some hail from Oakville and Etobicoke.

Need we say that no matter where you live, you’re welcome as a member or guest at our meetings and events.

Our focus is horticultural, of course, but we also love to socialize.

A Christmas dinner and a June meeting in a member’s garden, with refreshments, are two of our social events.

We also believe in giving back to the community, and have raised thousands of dollars in support of deserving local organizations.
