About Us

District 9 comprises 13 societies, largely in the beautiful Niagara Peninsula (one in Haldimand County). We are blessed with a generally moderate climate and a hardiness zone of 6 a or b. Our geographic area is bounded in the east by the Niagara River and goes lake-to-lake from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario and west to Grimsby and Smithville. The peninsula is also home to a range of floral greenhouses, the Niagara Parks Commission Botanical Gardens and world-renowned School of Horticulture, as well as many wineries taking advantage of the grape-growing microclimate and soils, e.g., the Beamsville Bench.
In the midst of this horticultural bounty, societies in the District work on a variety of gardening and educational initiatives that encourage biodiversity, sustainability, and environmental enhancement and protection. In the process, they are beautifying their communities and having fun doing it. This is a long tradition in this area. In the last few years, two societies celebrated 100 year anniversaries, 4 have marked 90 years, and in 2017 St Catharines celebrated its 160th year —longer than Confederation!
