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.

Marjorie Harris: The Evolution of a Gardener

In her middle years, lifestyles journalist and broadcaster Marjorie Harris turned her life upside down and did something new – she built a garden. On her long, narrow midtown Toronto lot she made the usual errors of a new gardener, but she created a highly original style that has been growing and changing over the years.

 
Naturally, Marjorie wrote about her garden and about gardening in general: she  published 15 book, became editor of Gardening Life magazine and garden columnist for the Globe and Mail. She also started her own garden design business, creating innovative spaces for others.
But her abiding passion remains her own garden, which she photographs daily.  She continues to move plants around and dream up new combinations, “in spite of great age”, as she puts it.
Marjorie’s wise and humorous talk follows the changes in her garden over the years, and shows some of the newer gardens she has designed for others.
Her latest book is Thrifty Gardening from the Ground Up, House of Anansi Press.
Books will be available for sale and signing.
