Societies in Ontario
Schomberg Horticultural Society
Please note that all scheduled events have been cancelled due to the pandemic.
The executive members are hard at work to prepare for virtual meetings, webinars and other methods to keep its valued members informed and connected with each other.
The Safety of our members, supporters and community at large is our priority.
Once government regulations allow us we will commence with in person meetings again.
Since its inception on April 12th, 1935, the Schomberg Horticultural Society has been an integral part of King Township.
The objectives of the Society are to hold meetings with guest speakers that will encompass all aspects of horticulture to encourage all types of gardening.
It promotes the protection of the environment through good gardening practices, tree plantings, public beautification and educational materials and how to be good stewards of our lands.
Furthermore the Horticultural Society is to provide competitions, exhibits, field trips, contests and awards to promote these objectives. These are bound by their constitution and are governed by
the Agricultural & Horticultural Organizations Act of the Province of Ontario.
The Schomberg Horticultural Society has not taken these tasks lightly, which is evident by the numerous projects, installations, maintenance and beautification of gardens it has taken on over the years.
The monthly meetings feature interesting and educational speakers but the main events are the plant sale on the weekend before Mother's Day and the Annual Garden Tour on the last Sunday in June.
