Durham & District Horticultural Society

District 8

About Us

The Durham & District Horticultural Society was first established in 1896 by a group of residents wishing to help beautify our town and to plan meetings to come together to teach, learn and discuss all things "green & growing!"

The Durham & District Horticultural Society is a "growing" community group. We hold many events, workshops and meetings throughout the year. We plant and maintain several gardens in the community with the help of our wonderful volunteers. Our General Meetings are held the third Thursday of the month from March to November at the Durham Town Hall starting at 7 PM with amazing speakers who instruct and answer all of our gardening questions. We are the proud hosts of the Durham Herb Fair, a yearly Flower Show and Plant Sale. We hold an annual Tree Draw, offering 3 trees to new residents of our area. Membership is $10 for the year and everyone, members and non-members are always welcome! "Come Grow With Us!"
