About us

2013 Mar Elaine at Seedy Sat

We are a group of friendly volunteers who love to grow things, to learn about gardening, and to share our knowledge with others who also love gardening. We are also dedicated to beautifying our community and keeping it green. Photo: Lorraine DeFazio.

Our society first began in 1908 but was discontinued for 18 years due to  World War I. The society was restarted in 1926 and is still going strong today—almost 90 years later!

Our society is a member of the Ontario Horticultural Association (OHA),  and we send members to the annual convention each year. We are also part of OHA District 13, which includes these societies:

Algoma Manitoulin Sudbury
Sault Ste. Marie
Lake George (Echo Bay)
St. Joseph Island
Bruce Station
Thessalon
Espanola
Assiginack (Manitouwaning)
Campbell (Providence Bay)
Blind River
Elliott Lake
Massey-Walford
Spanish
Sudbury
French River

Representatives from these societies meet three times a year to discuss new information from the Ontario Horticultural Association, talk about common issues, share ideas, and plan for future meetings.
