Hello, fellow gardeners! (or gardeners to be!)

Join us on November 16th, 7:00 pm at St. Luke's United Church,

5374 St. Margaret's Bay Rd. in Upper Tantallon.

This meeting will be our Holiday Social, with the potluck finger food and punch returning! We'll have a brief AGM and a presentation by Penny Irving What is Sleeping in Your Garden?

Valuable garden friends are sleeping and sheltering there! 

Join us, and bring a friend! We now charge $5.00 for guests, but you can join at any time for only $20.00 per year, or $25.00 for a family.

Each month, we accept donations for the St. Margaret’s Bay Food Bank – cash donations are preferred as they give the food bank the most flexibility. The day after the meeting, an executive member delivers the donations directly to the manager.

Although masks are no longer required at St. Luke’s United Church, you are welcome to wear one, and there is ample seating to give everyone a comfortable option.

Making Holiday Themed Outdoor Containers, Door Sprays and Indoor Yule Logs for the Holiday Season

(See pricing guidelines at the bottom)

Join us for a three-hour workshop and have fun dressing up your home for the holidays.


Sunday, November 27      1-4 p.m. 


(Rain or Shine as we can be inside)

St. Luke’s United Church

Upper Tantallon


Register early, maximum 25 people

At St Luke’s, masks are optional. If we are inside, it is a large facility where we can easily distance while we make our decorations.

We will be using natural materials with festive touches to creatively welcome the winter season. Though we will have many things on hand, it would be great if you are able to bring an assortment of evergreen boughs and decorative branches from your properties to share--but not necessary. 


The SMBGC will provide decorative bows and ribbons. Bring a special ornament(s) to include in your arrangements if you like, and of course your container(s) and pruners, extra déor to share and glue guns if you have one.


If you’re using a pot with soil, ensure it is not frozen by putting it indoors prior to the workshop. (You could also use a large block of floral foam which is reasonably priced at the Dollar Store in Tantallon).
