About us... The St. Margaret's Bay Gardening Club was founded in the mid-'90s as an informal group of like-minded Bay area gardeners who wanted to share their knowledge.
Interested in plants? So are we, and we'd love to get to know you! You don't have to be an experienced gardener to join us for informative presentations, workshops and other events. We welcome anyone with an interest in growing plants for beauty or food - or both!
IMPORTANT! a time change for April 21st meeting - 7:30 pm.
So, welcome to the club!
We normally meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7:00 Sept - Nov/Jan - May
We are meeting at St. Luke's United Church sanctuary for the foreseeable future, due to the Tantallon Public Library not having their meeting room available.
Guests are always welcome to attend our meetings! Membership for 2020/2021 has reverted back to $15.00 a year for singles, and $20.00 for families. We also support the St. Margaret's Bay Food Bank and if you wish to bring a donation of cash, we will provide an envelope and will deliver the donations to the Food Bank after each meeting. Due to Covid-19, we are currently NOT accepting donations of non-perishable food.
IMPORTANT NEWS ON OUR SMBGC CLUB MEETING LOCATION and FEE STRUCTURE for 2020/2021
We have had many cancellations this past year due to Covid-19. Meetings have been planned and then had to be cancelled as provincial guidelines for group sizes change from time to time. Our venue follows all guidelines. Although we hate to cancel meetings, and would love to be able to find alternative venues, it is just not possible to make these arrangements at short notice. We're doing our best to keep you informed about scheduled events, and if you are a member, you will get regular email updates!
In the past, the club has met at the Tantallon Library, however their meeting room will not be available to community groups for the foreseeable future. We will meet at St. Luke’s United Church, following guidelines for Visitors/Renters based on the current recommendations of NS Health for Covid-19. Community groups must follow physical distancing, the wearing of masks, use of hand sanitizers on site, only one person in a washroom at a time and the use of contact tracing forms. The Facility is wheelchair accessible, with ample parking, and the sanctuary can hold 70 + people comfortably while adhering to COVID-19 Guidelines. We have booked the Sanctuary for the SMBGC for the next few meetings.
