PROBUS Club of Durham West

Garden Club

The Garden Club meets on the second Monday of each month. (Note the new day).

We carpool from Walmart in Ajax leaving at 10:00 a.m. sharp!  (Note this is a new carpool location).

We meet twice a year to plan outings and events, then we use the meeting time to go out and about as a group.

Our outings include visits to gardens, garden centres and local points of interest such as Guildwood, Edwards Gardens and Allan Gardens. 

For more information concerning our group contact the co-chairs:

Fifteen members of the Garden Club enjoyed our first outing of the year on Monday, April 8th. We had a very interesting tour of Valleyview Gardens in Markham, a garden centre owned by three brothers that has been in business for over 50 years! We decided to forego our usual luncheon plans so we could arrive home in plenty of time to observe the eclipse!


Parkland  Lifestyle Residences  again welcomed us for our March 5th meeting, which was well attended and resulted in many interesting suggestions and planned outings for 2024.

To start the year off, in April we will visit Valleyview Garden Centre in Markham and of course will have lunch afterwards.

We decided to change our meeting day from the first Tuesday of the month to the SECOND MONDAY of the month, a more convenient time for our members  to attend outings.

Also, Walmart in Ajax has kindly agreed to let us CARPOOL from their parking lot!

We are excited and looking forward to the many events planned for the year!


The Garden Club currently has 30 enthusiastic members and we are looking forward to our first meeting of the year on March 5th. 

This will be our annual Planning meeting to come up with ideas and suggestions for our monthly outings throughout the year.  We look forward to the suggestions put forward and this usually results in lively discussions as we decide on the dates for the outings.

Parkland Lifestyle Residences (located at 3 Rossland Rd W., Ajax west of Harwood) has graciously agreed to let us continue meeting in their beautiful Great Room on the 2nd floor. 

The meeting will begin at 1:30 p.m. until approximately 3:00-3:30 p.m.
