Your Community Gardening Society

“Where Gardeners come to Bloom”  We meet at the Nestleton Hall the first Tuesday of every month, except for March which will be the second Tuesday, at 7:30pm. There are no meetings in January and February.

Membership is open to anyone who loves learning how to start a garden in any container or plot of land to any seasoned gardener who wishes to expand their knowledge, all in a warm and friendly environment.

For the low price of $15 single membership, $20 family (two adults at the same address) you will get far more out of the meetings with speakers, seasonal gardening tips and more.


In accordance with Provincial Health Regulations regarding COVID-19, we regret that our May and June Meetings have been cancelled. Township of Scugog – COVID-19 Public Notice #10: Scugog Extends closure of public facilities, postpones programs and cancels events until July 3rd.
Stay home if you can, mask up if you can’t. We’ll see you in July – we hope!

Free Pollinator Seeds for Scugog Families

POLLINATOR POWER – families helping the environment

The Scugog Environmental Advisory Committee (SEAC) is giving away free pollinator seed packets to Scugog families who would like to plant a small plot of wildflowers to help insects on their property. If the property is a rental please confirm with your landlord that the planting may take place.  A flowerbed space of approximately 1 metre by 1 metre would need to be provided for the planting of the seeds. 

To receive a packet in the mail, submit a drawing, photo, poem or other explanation of one of these topics:

–          Pollinators you have seen on your property

–          Where you would plant the seeds on your property

–          Why you want to help pollinators

Please e-mail your submission by May 27th to works@scugog.ca
