Belle River & District Horticultural Society
Welcome to our website. We want to invite you on a journey through our Society, meet our members and the Board of Directors. You will visit our events, see a Children's Workshop and watch our public projects grow. You will see, learn, and meet many likeminded gardeners.
Come join us!
Our meetings are on the third Tuesday of the month at the St. Simon & Jude Hall
267 Meunier Street, Belle River. Meetings begin at 7:30
Summer of 2016 is moving along fast and it is time to look forward to our fall session. Our September 20 meeting will feature the Fall Flower Show. The schedule was prepared by Juliette St Pierre and we appreciate her work. Good Luck to All! To see the schedule go to the "News and Events" page.
The speaker for September 20 is Gary Eagleton form Ridgetown. Gary is a retired teacher and a farmer who has taken eighteen acres of his farm and returned it to a tall grass prairie and wetlands. Gary will be doing a presentation on “Development of hayfield to wetland and tall grass prairies in ten years”. Gary will also be giving us some information on what he and his wife learned when travelling to Tibet and Nepal.

To Our Members:
Our Horticultural Society has contributed to a Ontario-wide project to plant trees along the stretch of highway 401 that is called the "Highway of Heroes". All soldiers who lost their lives serving our armed forces are brought down this road between Trenton and Toronto. Our organization received the attached note and the link for everyone to see what our contribution means to this important project.
