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.

Medicine in the Perennial Garden
Many gardeners have medicine growing in their flower beds and either don’t realize it or don’t know how to use the plants. This presentation will identify those medicinal plants most likely to be in an existing garden and suggest others that an interested gardener might like to add. There will be discussion of why these plants would be beneficial to general health as well as to certain diseases. Members and Guests will be able to sample a variety of teas using medicinal plant material
