Brooklin Horticultural Society

District 17

About Us

Brooklin Hort Soc was amalgamated in 1921, and now serves the Village of Brooklin as well as the larger overall Town of Whitby. We have gardening and design responsibility for a large community park, known as the Brooklin Horticultural Society Garden, in Brooklin. In addition we provide planting and garden maintenance support for the Wounded Warriors Park of Reflection in Whitby. Our past garden programs have evolved into municipal responsible activities, continuing the long tradition of downtown hanging baskets and planters in both Whitby and Brooklin.
BHS has activities organized with a Senior's Living Centre, and shares 3 meetings annually with the Whitby in Bloom program, joining with them to provide high profile speakers for our General Meetings in March, April and May.
Along with an annual Plant Sale, BHS is holding a Rain Barrel Drive this year.
BHS provides a $500 annual bursary for a Durham College Horticultural Program Student, as well as prize money for the Horticultural competitions at the Brooklin Spring Fair.
BHS is a member of the Brooklin Downtown Steering Committee
