Glen Morris Horticultural Society

District 6

About Us

Welcome to the Glen Morris Horticultural Society!

Glen Morris is a small village situated in the northern part of Brant County. The Grand River bisects our village and provides a beautiful backdrop for our 11 community gardens. Our Society plants and maintains flowerbeds at the Library, Centennial Hall, Public School, United Church, and the Boat Launch.

The Glen Morris Horticultural Society is in District 6, also known as the Carolinian District. There are 21 Societies and Clubs in this large District. We are in the northern most section of this zone and have plants, shrubs, and trees that are unique to this area.

Our Society Meetings run from February to May and from September to November. We often have guest speakers and try to offer educational and fun activities throughout the year. Each year, we hold a Plant Sale, a Bus Trip, a Coffee Party, and co-host a Community BBQ. Everyone is welcome to attend these events. Society volunteers visit the Glen Morris Central Public School seven or eight times a year to provide horticultural activities to some of the school children.

Our Membership Drive is held in November. Your $15 membership fee supports the work we do in our community. Each member receives a copy of our monthly newsletter, "Garden Gleanings."

Thankfully, our Society has many volunteers who get involved in our activities. We have hosted District Meetings and have held very successful Garden Tours. Our Society has won many competitions in Communities in Bloom. This is quite the feat for such a small hamlet.

Please join us! We welcome anyone interested in gardening.
