Maxville and District Horticultural Society

District 1

About Us

The Maxville & District Horticultural Society was established in 1923 to promote horticulture and the beautification of our community. We continue today, following the experience of past leaders as we strive to learn new and interesting ideas. Although through the past year and again into this current year we have had to adapt and adjust to many different challenges in order to fulfil this obligation. Due to restrictions following the outbreak of COVID-19 Pandemic many functions of our society changed.
As we are not able to share the fellowship of meetings, we have established contact with our membership and other societies, through social media on our Facebook page and email contacts. We now are able to share informative and interesting presentations by guest speakers via Zoom virtual meetings. We will do our best to promote planting flowers, trees and shrubs. We shared seeds with a local school kindergarten class.
