Societies in Ontario
Winona Horticultural Society
We are a community-based organization dedicated to bringing people closer to their gardens and the land we all share.
Our meetings feature interesting speakers, fellowship and fun. In the month of June we often take a tour of local horticultural attractions, and in August we have a booth at the Winona Peach Festival.
We have been “growing since 1929”, dedicating ourselves to beautifying our community, and sharing education and camaraderie to all gardeners and enthusiasts who come through our doors.
We maintain community gardens, sell flowers & plants at our booth at the Peach Festival, donate to beautification and environmental causes, support RBG (Royal Botanical Gardens) and horticultural outreach programs in our area. We also award bursaries every year to local students in recognition of their Environmental Awareness.
Our official flower is the columbine.
