The Botany Club

The Botany Club gives students, with an interest in plants, an opportunity to meet, gather and participate in a variety of wonderful events throughout the year. Members of this club have a great wealth of botanical knowledge, so it is an excellent place to learn and share. Whether you want more information about a certain class or tips on plant care, you can find it here. Events throughout the year include, themed nature walks, trips to the Royal Botanical Garden and camping. The club also prides its self with its annual College Royal display. This is a great chance to get involved and meet people with this wonderful common interest.

Horticulture Club

Over the years the Horticulture Club has brought people together from all different areas of interest to share our love for plants.  We plan many events and trips including Canada Blooms Conference in Toronto, a behind the scenes tour of 20 Bees Winery in St. Catharines and our local Wellington Brewery.  Every year the club participates in the Canadian Greenhouse Conference hosted by the University of Guelph in early October.  This event was moved to the International Center in Toronto in 2001 and the club is still actively involved in organizing and presenting displays. After the show, the displayed plant material is donated to the club, which we then use to raise funds for club activities.  This is always a fun time selling plants in the University Center and it is one of our major fund raising activities, and we are very grateful to all of the people who donate. Another annual activity for the club is College Royal. College Royal is the University of Guelph’s Open House where all of the departments, clubs, and organizations on campus display their best for the public. The club always creates many interactive displays for this event and have won many awards for their fine work.
