Community developmentEducation and researchEnvironment

The Society hosts 10 open meetings during the year to members and public that provide informative and educational horticultural related speakers. The Society hosts flower show competitions, photo contests, exursions and seminars. A monthly newsletter is distributed and is freely available from the website. Plant displays are provided at the local Gilda and Hospice facilities. The society participated in the "Spring Into Eco" show held in Barrie by Probus. Almost 1,000 volunteer hours were logged towards operations and events during the year. A Floral pain night was held to expand our community exposure. We designed a new website that is more user-friendly and hope to expand a knowledge base on the site with appropriate linkages.
