Creemore Horticultural Society
Creemore Horticultural Society has been part of the Creemore community since 1921. We are a friendly group of gardeners who meet on a regular basis to have a good time with like-minded people while learning about gardening and nature, working in community gardens, or participating in various special events such as flower shows, a plant sale, and more. You are ALWAYS welcome to our meetings and to public events. No experience or education is needed to join us—all you need is an interest in growing plants, either vegetables or ornamentals. COME GROW WITH US!
