B Brighton Garden Club

District 4

About Us

History and Objectives
The Brighton Horticultural Society was organized on April 12, 1925 at a meeting in the Brighton Town Hall. The Reverend A. K. McLeod presided over this meeting during which a full slate of officers was elected and 125 members joined. Meetings have been held every year since that time.

The Society’s floral emblem, the Marigold, a flower known in the Middle Ages, was chosen in 1973.

The objective of the Brighton Garden Club and the Horticultural Societies Act (Bill 66) of the Province of Ontario is to encourage interest and improvement in horticulture in our district:
● by holding meetings for the instruction and discussion on subjects connected with the theory and practices of horticulture;
● by encouraging the planting of trees, shrubs and flowers on public and private grounds;
● by promoting balcony and community gardening and outdoor beautification;
● by arranging field trips, contests, competitions, and exhibitions related to horticulture and awarding prizes;
● by distributing seeds, plants, bulbs, flowers, trees, and shrubs;
● by promoting the protection of the environment;
● by promoting the circulation of horticultural information.
