Gananoque Horticultural Society

District 3

About Us

Do check us out on Facebook to see gardening info, photos as well as our youtube channel"Gananoque Gardeners.
2022 will be our 102nd Anniversary of being part of GardenOntario. A milestone we are proud of as a society. Our Anniversary events were cancelled in 2020 and again in 2021 so we are going to have an even bigger party this year.
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.
