About Us

District 15 is comprised of 15 societies. We have quite a mix of rural and urban societies. Our boundaries include the regions of Peel, York west of Road No. 1, and Toronto west of Yonge Street. Representatives from each society meet annually for our District Annual General Meeting and District Advisory meetings. The District Board meets various times throughout the year in preparation for the AGM and District Advisory meetings and other special meetings as the need arises.
No matter what skill levels one has, be it youth or first-time gardeners, be it experienced gardeners or even Master Gardeners and Horticulturalists, the joy of gardening can be experienced by all age groups. There is something of interest for everyone at a Horticultural Society, regardless if your garden is a tiny balcony or a vast sprawling country estate, or somewhere in between.

At the recent District 15 AGM, held at St. Matthew's United Church in Richmond Hill, Doreen Coyne was elected as the new District 15 Director. Barb O'Malley received a Past Director's pin, a District Appreciation Certificate and a bouquet of flowers as a thank you for her many years on the District 15 Board and as District Director. Asna Black, Lucia Rostirolla, Dorothy Wood, Doreen Coyne and Eleonora Schmied received District Appreciation Certificates. Barb O'Malley presented a glass terrarium do Dorothy Wood who retired after 14 years as District Treasurer. Doreen Coyne thanked the volunteers of the Richmond Hill Garden & Horticultural Society and members of St. Matthew's United Church for their volunteering at the AGM. Janet Orr, of the Schomberg Horticultural Society, received the very prestigious OHA District 15 Service award for her longstanding commitment to the Society and all of her volunteering for over 40 years.
David Biensch was elected as the new District 15 Treasurer, Roberta Jennings and Michelle Wilson as new Assistant District 15 Directors.
