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.

Why Raised Beds Rule!

There are multiple benefits to building raised bed gardens, from covering up poor soil, to providing better accessibility to extending the growing season.  You can place raised beds almost anywhere, whether you have a big yard, a small space or a balcony.  This talk will address all those benefits and provide some inspiration for building your own raised bed.  Not handy? No problem! You can still have a raisetara-nolan-portfolio-headshotd bed even if you don’t want to pick up a hammer.  You’ll also learn where to put your new raised bed, what soil to use and what to plant – edibles, as well as ornamentals for the pollinators!
