Diggers and Weeders Garden Club of Montreal

Founded in 1932

“Hope is Action” said David Suzuki – our new mission to fight Climate Change
I am so excited to share with you a mission that is close to my heart, and one that is close to yours too I hope. It is one that concerns all of us: addressing climate change and the urgent need to reduce our carbon footprint.
David Suzuki said that: Hope is Action. And in our small way this is what we must do. Take Action!
We cherish the beauty of our natural surroundings, and we have a unique opportunity to make a positive impact at the grassroots level. Each one of us, regardless of our age, can contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly world. 

On Monday afternoon, October 24th,1932, Mrs. R.M. Ballantyne invited a group of ladies to her home at 30 Forden Avenue to consider the possibility of forming a Garden Club. Mrs. R.J. Mercur gave a short informal talk outlining what Garden Clubs were for and what they could do.
