Oshawa Garden Club keeping our community green

Message from the OGC President

Membership Update, March 29, 2020

Thank you for visiting our Website. The Oshawa Garden Club is still alive and well and operating in the shadow of COVID-19. While it is impossible to meet publicly and to do work in our community to run horticultural events and activities until further notice, we are using this downtime to think of ways that we can get back to doing all of those garden-related things that we all love.

Stay tuned for updates and visit our Friends of Oshawa Garden Club Facebook Page for immediate updates, ideas on gardening, to share our ideas, pictures and videos to feed our interest in things horticultural and to stay connected as a gardening community. By all means get out into your own gardens and the fresh air, but do it away from direct contact with others and WASH YOUR HANDs when finished. We will also try to provide updates on Facebook on where you can still get gardening supplies. Many suppliers are providing curb service for phone and internet orders. Again, stay safe and keep separated.

To our members, we will do our best to keep you posted on what will be happening by email and phone if needed. Please be patient as we all work through these difficult times and please consider all Oshawa Garden Club non-virtual activities to be suspended until further notice.

Will we have our annual Plant Sale? Good question as I know that many of you look forward to that every year. It is still scheduled for May 30th, but it is unlikely that it will happen as planned. We will wait until the end of April to cancel it officially so do keep in mind that we may still need your plant donations at some point in the future.

Watch this site too, for information on what garden centres are still open for curb service or pre-order pickups as we are contacting many of them to get that information for you. After all, Gardening is an essential activity.

In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and take good care of each other. Stay in touch with gardening friends and remember that gardening feeds the soul! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you might have. Above all, Stay Calm and Garden On!

Yours in Gardening,
Merle Cole
