Elora and Salem Horticultural Society
The Elora and Salem Horticultural Society is celebrating it's 173rd year, making us one of the oldest continuously operating societies in the province. We thank our enthusiastic membership for their perseverance in making this a reality.
Come on out and join us. It is very rewarding to be able to participate in the beautification of our community through the planting and maintenance of select community flower beds. Some of the perks of a membership are the opportunities to share gardening stories with other gardeners, or to share some of our over achieving and prized plants.
We also offer an annual Student Bursary, and hold an Annual Spring Plant Sale.
