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.

     Front Yard Gardens

Liz Primeau’s front-yard garden in Applewood Acres is not only eye-catching,it’s biodiverse, attracting bees, butterflies and birds to its variety of plants. She tells the story of how she transformed her front yard from a stretch of barren lawn into an environmentally friendly garden, converting her grass-loving neighbours in the process and shows examples of many other styles of front-yard gardens from coast-to-coast.

Liz Primeau, a long-time gardener, and an editor and writer with magazines such as Chatelaine, Toronto Life and Ontario Living, was founding editor of Canadian Gardening magazine in 1990 and host of HGTV’s Canadian Gardening program for three years in the late 90s. She also organized the Applewood Garden Club in 1999, with 12 members. She’s lived in Mississauga most of her life, since 1979 in Applewood Acres.
