About Us

Since 1900, our Society has been beautifying the community and enriching members in all things horticultural. We invite you to become involved by either volunteering in our many programs or by attending our excellent speakers. For a full list of our speakers, please check below (some are done virtually and some may take place outdoors).
We welcome volunteers to assist with our flowerbeds in and around Elmira, Floradale, and Breslau. Our Scholarship Fund for Woolwich students is awarded to youth pursuing university or college studies in horticultural or agricultural fields.
