Cornwall & District Horticultural Society

District 1

About Us

The Cornwall and District Horticultural Society was founded in 1993.
We are a fun group who do a lot of volunteering in the City of Cornwall. Since 2017, we have been designing and planting the 10 bridge boxes and the large centre planter that adorn the Three Nations Bridge which crosses the Cornwall Canal south of Brookdale Avenue.

We have a very active Facebook group, where we share gardening inspiration ideas and tips.

We are actively looking for new members who are interested in gardening, no experience necessary.
