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 the past two years have brought many challenges due to the COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions, our Society has faced these with endurance and the support of everyone, to move ahead.

This year we have an exciting program planned. We have joined many others in the celebration of “The Year of the Garden 2022”. With the support of the Township of North Glengarry, the hanging baskets will be put up. The boxes and beds will all be planted, and we are doing a feature bed project at the Maxville Manor. Of course, we will use as many RED flowers as we can. We have also changed many of our competitions to add new categories which incorporate RED flowers. We have also added a photo contest this year.
