Nobleton & King City Horticulture Society

District 15

About Us

A BIT OF HISTORY.
In December 1957 a group of gardening enthusiasts met in Nobleton to propose the forming of a local Horticultural Association.
Approval was granted in January of 1958 and the “Nobleton and District Horticultural Society” was born. In those early years, several people had key roles in ensuring the clubs’ success. They were John Neate, Pearl Mactaggart, Nellie Goodfellow, and Mrs. Russell Snider.
If you think those names sound familiar, it’s because they all subsequently had streets in Nobleton named after them.
In 2018, The society celebrated its 60th Anniversary. We are excited to see what the next 60 years will bring!

New Members Welcome!
If you are interested in nature and in all things garden, then this club is right for you. We offer a series of speakers that offer expert advice. At our monthly meetings, you can discuss your garden with our many long-time club members. They have a wealth of practical knowledge to share.
Flower shows offer opportunities to show off your plants and to try some floral designs.
We also get involved in our community. These partnerships offer us a chance to expand our environmental impact and to meet new people.
The N&KCGC Plant Sale provides locally grown hardy plants. Many of them are grown in our own gardens!

Our mission is to encourage interest in Horticulture and related Environmental Stewardship initiatives, through sharing the theory and practice of gardening with our membership and the wider community.
