Societies in Ontario
Gloucester Horticultural Society
Every month gardeners from Ottawa-East gather to exchange ideas, resolve growing dilemmas, and enjoy the company of other horticulturists in a congenial atmosphere. The Gloucester Horticultural Society was started in 1925 and today enjoys a membership of about 100 active members.
Our aim is to provide a congenial atmosphere in which to learn, share and practice horticulture. Our mission is to inform, educate and share horticultural knowledge.
