OHA In Memoriam Program

Remembering our Gardening Friends

The Ontario Horticultural Association "In Memoriam" book is an opportunity for gardeners in the Province of Ontario to be remembered by their peers. It offers Societies or individuals to honour deceased gardeners who have devoted their lives to the joys of tending their own and, in many instances, public gardens. This honour roll is for all gardeners; they need not have been members of the OHA or a Horticultural Society or Garden Club.

Donations can be made to the Ontario Horticultural Association "In Memoriam." The name and date of death of the person being honoured will be inscribed in calligraphic form in a leather-bound perpetual-memorial book. This book is displayed at the Association's Annual Conference, which is held in a different Ontario city every year and is attended by more than 500 delegates from every corner of the province.

Funds received "In Memoriam" will be used by the Ontario Horticultural Association and Local societies and garden clubs for planting memorial trees. To donate to this Memorial Fund, send a cheque or money order to:
