Registration, accommodations, schedule
The St. Lawrence River runs by the City of Cornwall and the NAV Centre, the venue for the Ontario Horticultural Association’s 2014 Annual Conference.
Cornwall, situated in the southeast corner of the province, is just a short hour’s drive from Ottawa and Montreal.
The NAV Centre is the largest conference facility in eastern Ontario. This beautifully landscaped location will provide for all the needs of conference participants. Yes, you’ll find it all under one roof: accommodations, restaurants, meeting spaces, and the banquet hall. The NAV Centre boasts an Irish pub, a full-service spa, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, and a pool.
From July 18th to July 20th District One has an array of special speakers lined up and bus tours to gardens, historical sites, and areas unique to the region. You will learn about the events that surrounded the building of the St. Lawrence Seaway, about the Lost Villages, Upper Canada Village, and the Alfred Bog.
There will be seminars and workshops on a variety of topics, pollinators, soils, and dahlias to name a few. A night of entertainment in a Bistro setting is planned for Friday evening. At the Banquet on Saturday, the keynote speaker is Larry Hodgson, a free-lance garden writer, lecturer, photographer, and author of over 40 books.
For those who like camping, there are several campgrounds nearby that will appeal to fishermen and wildlife enthusiasts. There is a site with recreational trails and even one with a private boat launch.
Come visit us, renew old acquaintances, make new friends, and discover Cornwall, one of Canada’s oldest settlements.
