Waterloo Gardeners is a community group with a passion for gardening. We are a volunteer, non-profit organization located in Waterloo, Ontario. Since 1895, when we were known as the Waterloo Horticultural Society, we have offered presentations, workshops and other activities to encourage knowledge and awareness of horticulture and the environment in the community. Our programs and activities are for anyone who has an interest in gardening.

Our Next Meeting - April 23, 2021
At our next meeting, we welcome Catherine Kavassalis on Invasive Species in the home garden. Cathy is a passionate gardener and conservationist. A former chemist, she did her doctoral work at M.I.T. and later received a master's in environmental education from the University of Toronto. Now she volunteers as an educator and inspirational speaker. She is a member of the Halton Master Gardeners group, the Past President of Oakville Horticultural Society and a former member of the Board of Directors for the Royal Botanical Gardens. Catherine loves to garden and believes that caring for plants is critical for the wellbeing of our planet. Catherine enjoys learning and sharing knowledge and by doing so endeavours to stimulate interest and awe in the living world.
