Gimli Garden Club

Gimli Garden Club was formed in 2004. It currently has 18 members and is always looking to welcome more. The club meets the second monday of the month from September to June at the Gimli Middle Years School.

The club has volunteered in the community by planting over 2000 marigolds down Centre St., and has created gardens in various places around the town. Summer Garden tours have been a popular group activity, and we are always delighted at the willingness of local gardeners to show off their gardens. This winter we are holding three garden seminars open to the public. The Manitoba Lily Society will present in February, Rock Gardens and Water Features will be the highlight of March and garden expert Dorothy Dobbie will be on hand in April for a question and answer session.

Gimli is located on the west shore of Lake Winnipeg and is zone 2b. Fishing and tourism are two of the main industries in town. The town population more than doubles during the summer months when the cottagers return to the Lake. Gimli is also home to the Diageo distillery where Crown Royal whiskey is made.
