The Merry May Meeting

May 27, 2019 Meeting

Our Merry May meeting has traditionally been held at St. George the Martyr, a church with which our Hort has had a long relationship. This year, however, we are trying something new — hosting it at our usual meeting place: Bonar-Parkdale Presbyterian Church 250 Dunn Avenue, just south of Queen Street West. Start time 7pm, and if you can, please bring something for the pot-luck.


The May Meeting is a special, informal gathering that celebrates the growing season and leads us into our summer break (regular meetings start up again in late September 2019).

At this year’s Merry May, we will be:

  • Recognizing & Celebrating our Society’s Volunteers — NONE of what we do would be possible if it wasn’t for these individuals!
  • Marvelling at our Community Garden Projects & Personal Gardens— Through a colourful photo display, we will share, learn, and explore the beauty of the gardens that we have supported over the past year through countless hours of effort! Have photos that you’d like to contribute? Please bring them along with you on a USB memory stick.
  • Swapping Plants — This year’s late spring meant that some of us weren’t able to get at our plants in time for the Plant Fair since they simply hadn’t peeped out of the ground yet. But perhaps now they have! We are welcoming any members who now have plant divisions or extras that they’d like to swap (or sell, with proceeds donated to our Hort) to bring them to the Merry May. We know we all have the best plants, so let’s take advantage of this opportunity! 
  • Eating Well — Our usual meeting room will be transformed into a comfortable seating area with tables, where we can relax, connect, and enjoy one another’s food and company. All are invited to contribute to this community pot luck!
