Our next event is on September 21st!  Don’t miss it!


To kick off our new 2022/2023 season, we will have a guided tour of the Canadensis site on Prince of Wales Drive and then a presentation on the proposed Master Plan by Gerry Lajeunesse, Chairman of the Canadensis Board.  Canadensis is a registered Canadian charity dedicated to bringing a Botanical Garden to Ottawa – Canada being the only country in the G20 without a Botanical Garden in its capital city.


We will meet at 5:00pm to catch the light.  Cake and refreshments will be served in the Red Barn.


Hope to see as many of you in attendance!

The location for the meetings after covid restrictions are lifted, is the Greenboro Community Centre (co-housed with Greenboro District Library), 363 Lorry Greenberg Drive (situated between Hunt Club Road and Conroy Road),


Hybrid Virtual and In-Person



We know that a lot of us miss the in-person meetings, and look forward to getting out and about. We also know that many of you do not yet feel comfortable in meeting in-person. So we will be trying out having both. If you wish to join virtually, you can, and you will see and hear everything going on in the meeting from the comfort of your own home. This will be the first time we have done this, so please bare with us if we have some issues. Comments after the meeting are welcome afterwards to help us improve the experience by emailing
