Share your love of gardening
This holiday season, share your love of gardening—buy a Society membership as a gift for a friend or relative. From free Member Talks to shopping discounts, the benefits of Society membership are many—and it’s a gift that keeps giving throughout the year.
As part of our seasonal Give the Gift of Membership campaign, anyone purchasing a gift membership for a NEW member will be entered into a draw for a prize package (a Society gardening journal (The Growing Journal), a 2023 calendar, and a $25 gift card to a local garden centre). The new member’s name will also be entered a draw for a prize package (a Society gardening journal (The Growing Journal), a 2023 calendar, and a $25 gift card to a local garden centre.) Help us grow!
Purchase online, in person, or by telephone
You can easily purchase a gift membership online at Membership/Gift Membership or call the office at 403.287.3469 for service by telephone. The individual membership fee is $55 and the senior (65+) membership fee is $35.
If you want to pick up the membership card so you can personally deliver your gift, please call the office and speak with Gail 403.287.3469. Please leave a message if the phone is not answered and Gail will return your call.
