Bowmanville Horticultural Society


 Bowmanville Horticultural Society


 The Bowmanville District Horticultural Society was founded in 1966. In October 2002, the Society name was officially changed to the Bowmanville Horticultural Society which is known by today.

We became a member of the OHA District 17 in July 1979 with 125 members.

In September 1989, we adopted the Apple Blossom as our official emblem. We are so fortunate to have in this area the most perfect soil, noted "Newcastle Loam" for the growing of apple trees. Thus our symbol was born. The apple blossom heralds spring and bees and signals that summer is almost here.

In 1996 on the occasion of our Societies 30th anniversary, Emily Slute shared a scrapbook of her late husband Merle's mementos of our Societies past 30 years.

In 2006 we celebrated our 40th anniversary with many of the past presidents joining us for a special evening of cake and refreshments.

In 2007 a youth group was revived after several years. Meeting regularly, they participate in community events and have their own youth classes at our monthly shows and competitons.
