ABOUT US

We are a very active group of gardeners from the true novice to those that have been gardening for many years. Regardless of whether our members reside in apartments, condos or homes with tiny or large gardens, we share an interest in gardening, indoors or out, and the environment.

CVHS History:

On October 10, 1984, the first meeting in aid of the formation of a new horticultural society in Mississauga was held. The society, originally called Erin Mills Horticultural Society, changed its name the following year to Credit Valley Horticultural Society to attract members from outside Erin Mills.

Having achieved the minimum required membership of 50 by June 1985, CVHS was declared a Society as defined under The Horticultural Societies Act and we became a proud member of the Ontario Horticultural Association in District 15.

Over the years, many programs and activites have been organized for the benefit of our members and the community. Our annual average membership has been 150. Membership fees cover costs related to our meetings (hall rental, speaker, newsletter etc.). We support our many community projects with two major fundraiser per year – our annual plant sale in May and garden tour in June.
