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. Join our gardening club in Waterloo today! 

We are currently seeking new volunteers to work with our Board of Directors.  Volunteers are needed to help at public and members events and in the public gardens that we maintain. Waterloo Gardeners is a volunteer group.  All of the programs, activities and events need many volunteers to make them a success.

The Volunteer Program recognizes the support of our volunteers. Anyone who volunteers 45 hours or more in a calendar year (January to December) will receive a free membership for the next fiscal year.
