About Us

Please be advised that due to the Covid -19 Pandemic all in-person gatherings have been suspended until further notice.
We are disappointed by this turn of events but the health and safety of all our members and the public are first and foremost. Check out our YouTube video site Gananoque Gardeners for some informative "how-to" demonstrations.
We plan to offer virtual meetings in 2021 until it is safe to meet face to face
If you want to join us on Zoom email us at gan.hort.soc @gmail.com and check the Event Calendar for our meetings. They are held the second Wednesday of the month
Be safe, be healthy and keep busy in your gardens. Please check back as we know the situation is rather fluid.
Do check us out on Facebook to see gardening info, photos.

2020 was our 100th Anniversary of being part of the GardenOntario. A milestone we are proud of as a society. Our Anniversary events that were cancelled will hopefully be held as the 101st Anniversary.
One of the primary aims of the Gananoque Horticultural Society is Community beautification. This is accomplished by encouraging people to develop their own gardens through our educational speakers and seminars.

Members and visitors have opportunities to see what others have done on garden tours, as well as through flower exhibitions and competitions and speakers. Our park at 21 Main St is a visual example of how we contribute to community beautification and education.

Our Society has been involved in the community of Gananoque and the surrounding area since the late 1800s. Our Society was first founded on April 1 1885 and fell inactive for a period following but has been continuously in service to the community since 1920.

The Gananoque Trillium Award is presented to the most attractive, well-maintained and planned garden, as viewed from the street. The winning gardens must look good throughout the growing season, and winners are notified in the fall and invited to our annual meeting and potluck supper in January.

We hold a plant sale each May to encourage affordable gardening. Each fall, club volunteers plant hundreds of bulbs around the Town Hall of Gananoque. This event will be evaluated to see if it can be safely held so check back.

We will be holding some very special events in 2021 which is our 101st Anniversary of belonging to the Ontario Horticultural Association.
