Meeting & Early Spring Flower Show

Location: Markham Village Community Centre
          6041 Highway 7 East  map

The Markham Garden and Horticultural Society, growing since 1920, brings fellow gardeners together to provide an opportunity to show flowers, fruit and vegetables grown in our own gardens.

We have design classes in the flowers shows for those who like flower arranging.

We  also offer opportunities for gardeners to exchange ideas and techniques.

Each month a speaker provides gardening related information.

You do not need to have a garden to be a member but just a love of nature.

We have a plant sale early in May and alternate each year between a garden tour and a bus tour.

Meetings are held on the 4th Monday of the month. There are no meetings in January, July or December.

Our meeting location is the Markham Village Community Centre, 6041 Highway 7 East at the southeast corner of Highway 7 and Main Street Markham.

Guest Speaker is: Angie Allen
Topic: 'Bug Off' (alternatives to pesticides)

The best way to get better at speaking a new language is practice. The Markham Newcomers Network is hosting free language cafes weekly on Tuesday evenings and Friday mornings. These are informal drop-in opportunities where you can enjoy a beverage and snack while practicing English with fluent locals and other newcomers wanting to improve their English skills. This is also a great opportunity to meet new people and build friendships. These cafes are intended for practicing conversational English and are not a replacement for classroom language instruction.

Visit for more information.
