Societies in Ontario
Guelph Township Horticultural Society
The Guelph Township Horticultural Society has been in existence since 1922. While the essence of it is the same, it has evolved over time and now includes guest speakers, flower and vegetable shows, photo competitions, plant sales, family events and special workshops.
The society is community oriented and provides a great opportunity to get involved as much as you choose, from simply attending meetings to entering shows, or digging in the dirt, or serving on a committee or two.
Everyone is welcome at meetings and events but memberships are required if you wish to enter a show.
