Lynden Horticultural Society

District 6

About Us

Lynden is a small village of about 500 people situated in the City of Hamilton, roughly between Hamilton and Brantford. Our largest industry we have is Winklemolen Wholesale Tree Nursery, where you often see trailers of trees going down the road.

We are also one of the oldest Horticultural Societies around, having been founded in 1928. Our Society plants the Legion and Lion's Den gardens and the Library planters. Every year we hold a Plant Sale and Flower Show and participate in the Lynden Canada Day event. At Christmas we make up baskets for shut-ins.

Our meetings this year will run from March to November at the moment. We have guest speakers on an array of topics as well as tours of various businesses and gardens with some workshops thrown in for good measure.

We welcome gardeners or non-gardeners!

General Information:

Our meetings are held the first Monday of the month from 7:00 to 9:00 pm generally at the Lynden Lion's Den. We start our meetings with refreshments (bring your own), then announcements and Speaker or Workshop follows. Our tours we meet at the location of the tour.
***In 2021 we will be changing things up a little. Our first meeting will be held in March instead of February and we will be having meetings in July and August so we can have garden tours of our members gardens. Our calendar will not be set in stone so we can change and move things around to accommodate what is happening around us. Please keep checking this site for updates.
