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.

2018 Society Highlights
In addition to the beautiful barrels on main street, Sherryl Smith and the beautification committee worked in co-operation with the Pakenham Library to install a new garden; we replaced two maple trees that died the previous winter; Sherryl Smith and Julia Peisley built, maintained and harvested veggies from new vegetable garden at Pakenham Public school; for the 50th anniversary of Pakenham Public School we relocated the pollinator garden and transformed the entrance garden. We increased membership through a three part garden speakers series in the spring called The Bright, The Beautiful and the Edible. Members also visited Stonebridge Gardens in nearby Middleville for their annual summer picnic. We had a successful fundraiser - the movie THE GARDENER in the fall.
