About Us

The Kemptville Horticultural Society has operated for more than 100 years! We have regular monthly meetings with guest speakers and goodies afterwards, a plant sale, tours of member's gardens in the summer, member discounts at nurseries, a local fund-raising garden tour every second year, and other fun activities. We are a friendly bunch and are happy to welcome you, whether your garden is small or big, fussy or relaxed, or even if you don't have a garden!
