About Us

Port Dover & Woodhouse horticultural society has been meeting for over 120 years and we maintain a membership of over 200 people.
Membership in our society is open to anyone with an interest in gardening, plants and related topics whether a beginner or an accomplished gardener.
The society is responsible for planting and maintaining a number of Port Dover public gardens and raised beds of vegetables destined for the Port Dover Lifeline Food Bank.
Nor sure you want to join? Come to a few meetings and then make your decision. The public is always welcome with no obligation. You have an opportunity to ask questions and receive informed answers from knowledgeable gardeners at regular monthly meetings as well as hearing our monthly speakers.
You can participate in monthly flower, design and photography competitions.
There is no charge for admission to our monthly meetings.
Trophy's and cash awards are presented to members who have placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in our flower shows.
