Plant Fair & Craft Sale - Saturday May 11, 2019, 10am - 2pm

The Plant Fair is held INSIDE at the Roncesvalles United Church 214 Wright Ave, Toronto, On M6R 1L3. Enter through the main front doors on Roncesvalles Ave. Wheelchair accessible, through the side door on the North side of the church.

AMAZING GARDEN FINDS & PLANTS OF ALL KINDS… all at the best prices in town! - with a focus on natives, organics, pollinators, herbs & veggies, and hard to find plants (since many offerings come from member gardens and are not plants easily found in nurseries).

Plus… ARTS & CRAFTS from local artisans; PRAYING MANTIS EGGS for you to hatch at home; BEE NESTS for solitary, gentle, pollinator bees; FREE ADVICE on plants, soil, eco-friendly gardening, and tree care; the GREEN ELEPHANT garden flea market; INFO about horticulture-related community initiatives and opportunities; and a BOTANICAL ART giveaway for all ages.

FEEL GOOD! This is the main fundraising event for The Horticultural Societies of Parkdale & Toronto (a recognized not-for-profit) and is organized and run all by volunteers. So take pride in knowing that the proceeds from your purchases will be going back into the community, to nurture all sorts of greening initiatives, community garden projects, and horticultural education outreach.

All happening the day before Mother’s Day!


Cash is preferred, but we now also accept Visa, MasterCard, and AmEx (only on purchases of $50 or more).

The perennial divisions contributed by members are the core of our fundraising success. Without your spadework and generosity we can’t do it. Please label your divisions thoroughly and include photos if you can. It makes for a guaranteed sale if you show the plant at its best. Simple labels can be made by cutting large yogurt containers into strips and writing on them with black markers, or pick up ready-cut labels from the Hort meeting.
