Cloverleaf Garden Club

Have you ever heard of this gardeners’ truth: no one gardens alone? Cloverleaf Garden Club is an evolving and growing club that brings people together to share their love of all things gardening. 

 

Is it a club for expert gardeners? Beginners? Veggie growers or flower lovers? 

It is all this and more.


We host guest speakers, gardening experts, learning opportunities, an annual plant sale, and committee opportunities. We get together monthly (except July, August, December) to learn, share ideas, connect with other gardeners, and make new friends.

Started in 1944, Cloverleaf Garden Club of Mississauga is a volunteer-run group of more than 130 members.

Sean Smith is the owner of Crooked Farmz, a microbrewer of fresh aerobic compost teas for home gardens, urban farms, and landscaping projects. His interest in developing a local CSA subscription service for composting and compost tea brewing emerges from deeper underlying concerns about soil health, microbial life, climate change, and our relationships with land and water. For the past three years he has won the Innovation category in the Best in GrowTO urban gardening competition for various techniques concerning backyard compost and compost tea production. He is originally from Kingston, ON, but has been growing vegetables in the East York area for the past 17 years.

Learn more about improving microbial soil health to better support thriving vegetable gardens, perennial beds, or backyard urban farms during this workshop hosted by Sean Smith of Crooked Farmz. This program will cover the basics of creating 'hot compost' yourself to improve soil health organically, using techniques relevant for the urban context. We will discuss types of composters; the all-important Carbon:Nitrogen ratio; aeration and moisture; feedstocks and amendments; fungi, worms, and other non-human partners. You will also spend time developing a personal plan for generating compost in your own gardening context.

Upcoming Events

Join us for our speaker series.  We are slowly starting to return to in-person events.

An Engineers Approach to Houseplant Care
with Darryl Cheng

Wednesday, February 16, 2022

If you follow traditional houseplant advice, you'll be left with disappointment because your plant is no longer "perfect". Darryl's approach breaks down the barriers to true, long-lasting enjoyment of houseplants - when you understand how plants work, you can gain a deeper appreciation for their character and more acceptance of how they'll grow.  It's a healthy dose of science and realistic expectations!
