Garden Clubs consist of community members who are interested in gardening.
In Ontario, The Garden Clubs of Ontario encompasses several clubs namely, The Garden Club of Dundas; The Georgian Bay Garden Club; Garden Club of Hamilton; The Garden Club of Kitchener-Waterloo; The Garden Club of London; Milne House Garden Club; The Garden Club of Niagara; The Garden Club of Toronto; The Toronto Japanese Garden Club; and a Council of Accredited Judges of Floral Design and Horticulture. There are also other Ontario garden clubs that do not fall under this umbrella.
In Nova Scotia the Nova Scotia Association of Garden Clubs incorporates several gardening clubs.
Clubs meet on a regular basis. Its members usually listen to or present on topics about gardening. They also set up programming events.
Scope and content
This collection consists of bulletins; newsletters; yearbooks; correspondence; articles; pamphlets; registries; annual reports; member lists; judge list; officer list; newspaper clippings; constitutions and by-laws; application forms; board of directors documents; and a flower show programme.
Immediate source of acquisition
This is an artificial collection, meaning that its materials were collected over time by different users, rather than being acquired by a single donor. Thus, the records’ original order and provenance have been lost.
