Description & Services

Information A community group dedicated to education, propagation of beauty, and a naturally good life in this area. 
In keeping with our club’s desire to continue our horticultural education, we have speakers at each meeting to discuss various topics. Each meeting starts with a brief social time when snacks, tea and coffee are served, provided by a rotation of members. This is followed by the presentation after which a brief meeting is conducted. Our on-line journal, The Gardener’s Grapevine was founded in 2005 by Myra Knight with Nancy Guest as the first editor, followed by Myra Knight and Marion Daniels. Jocelyn Cameron has edited it since 2007. This journal has proven to be an enjoyable and informative asset for our members who can contribute if they wish. 
At present Basin Gardeners has over 40 members. Nancy Guest is our Chair, Christine Boardman our Vice Chair, Gwen Slipp our Treasurer, Myra Knight our Recording Secretary and Nicole Levy our Corresponding Secretary.  
We welcome visitors and new members. Check out our website for our events and more information! 
Meetings Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of the month from 7 pm at Forest Heights Community School. No formal meetings are held in July, August or December.  
A guest speaker begins the session with an informative one hour presentation. This is followed by a social time with refreshments, and then the formal meeting. 
New members and visitors are welcome.
