Pakenham Horticultural Society
Welcome to the Pakenham Horticultural Society, your local garden club. Our motto is Gardeners helping Gardeners!
You don't need to be an expert to join our club!! We are a group of energetic gardeners of all ages and levels of experience.
We happily share our love and knowledge of gardening in the Ottawa Valley.
For over 90 years, we have held meetings on a wide variety of gardening topics (plants/flowers/vegetables/perennials/garden design etc), we host three friendly flower shows annually, we support the growth of new generation of green thumbs with our Junior Gardens program, and our members work on various community plantings to beautify our great village.

In addition to the beautiful barrels on main street, Sherryl Smith and the beautification committee worked in co-operation with RBC for a big cleanup in the Bridge Park; we had two successful plant sales; Sherryl Smith and Julia Peisley continued to maintain and harvest veggies with our junior members from the vegetable garden at Pakenham Public School; Members also toured Sandy Hanson's Hosta Garden in White Lake and had lovely lunch at nearby waterfront restaurant instead of their annual summer picnic.
