Flower Shows & Meetings

Our monthly meetings feature entertaining and informative speakers who educate our members on various aspects of horticulture and gardening. May, September and October meetings include professionally judged flower shows. Points and prizes are awarded to worthy specimens. All members are encouraged to exhibit and participate in this friendly competition.

Schedule of Meetings & Events

All monthly meetings are held in the O’Brien Rooms at the Chestnut Hill Developments Recreation Complex (formerly Pickering Recreation Complex) starting at 7:30 pm  (unless otherwise noted). Doors open at 7:00 pm for exhibitors to place their entries to be judged, before 7:15 pm. Out of consideration for the judges, the 7:15 pm deadline will be strictly enforced. Entrance to the O’Brien Rooms is via the Back Arena Entrance off of Diefenbaker Ct.
