The Garden Group enjoys gardens throughout the Edmonton area through the Spring, Summer and Fall. We visit various public gardens including St. Albert Botanic Garden, University of Alberta Botanic Park, the Muttart Conservatory, and other land preserves in the area. The highlight of the summer is the Edmonton Horticultural Society Garden Tour. We also try to visit local greenhouses in the spring for our spring plant shopping. This past spring we visited Gruger Family Fungi in Nisku to see the growing of various specialty mushrooms.
We try to time our visits to various gardens depending on when the special features of the garden are in blooms there is always something special to see. We also try to plan a lunch, picnic or at least a coffee before or after our garden visits. We are open to anyone who would like to join us for one or all of our outings. I know the summer can be busy for many but there are also activities in the Spring and Fall.
Meetings: At least once per month usually a Friday April to October various times and locations in and around Edmonton
