Bronte Horticultural Society: Through the Years
Master Gardeners History for Bronte


gardener The Ontario Master Gardeners program was started in 1985 by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA). The program recruited experienced gardeners from local horticultural societies.

The volunteers wrote an eligibility test and enrolled in Horticultural Independent Study courses from the University of Guelph.
The participants provided horticultural information to the public via garden clinics, telephone, workshops, newspaper articles, television, radio, and more recently, the computer.

In 1986, the Burlington Master Gardeners Group was formed, drawing its volunteer members from nearby Horticultural Societies. One member of the Bronte Horticultural Society joined the Burlington group.
