Pakenham Horticultural Society

District 2

About Us

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.
