Societies in Ontario
Credit Valley Horticultural Society
We are happy to announce that our return to in person meetings. We are a very active group of gardeners from the true novice to those that have been gardening for many years. Regardless of whether our members reside in apartments, condos or homes with tiny or large gardens, we share an interest in gardening, indoors or out, and the environment.
On October 10, 1984, the first meeting in aid of the formation of a new horticultural society in Mississauga was held. The society, originally called Erin Mills Horticultural Society, changed its name the following year to Credit Valley Horticultural Society to attract members from outside the Erin Mills neighbourhood.
Having achieved the minimum required membership by June 1985, CVHS was declared a Society as defined under The Horticultural Societies Act and we became a proud member of the Ontario Horticultural Association in District 15.
Over the years, many programs and activities have been organized for the benefit of our members and the community. Our annual average membership is around 150. Membership fees cover costs related to our meetings (hall rental, speaker, newsletter etc.). We support our many community projects with one major fundraiser per year – our annual plant sale on the May long weekend.
Visitors and new members are always welcome.
