Welcome to 2017 and the 25th Anniversary of the Norwood and District Horticultural Society (NDHS). We have a very exciting year ahead full of planting, growing, learning and sharing.
Our society brings together community members from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences to expand and share their knowledge in all aspects of horticulture. Whether it be the successful cultivation of vegetables, the development of sustainable and bio diverse gardens, or the creation of captivating floral arrangements, there is something for every taste and interest in this year’s program of speakers, workshops and flower shows. Check out the full listing in the meetings calendar.
Flower and foliage arrangements are a cornerstone of the Norwood Horticultural Society. All members are invited and encouraged to submit entries to the shows held at the February, May, September and November meetings. One of my personal goals for this year is to submit my first entry at one of these shows. I’m looking forward to the constructive criticism of the judges. I’m sure there will be lots!
As the old sayings go, “The more the merrier” and “Many hands make light work.” In that spirit, be sure to check out all of the committees that form the foundation of our Society. If anything should pique your interest be sure to connect with one of the listed committee members and see how you can help out. It’s a great way to contribute to the Society and to make new friends and acquaintances. My thanks go out to all those who have already stepped forward. It will be a great year.
I look forward to serving as your President this year and to seeing each and every one at our meetings and events.
Yours in horticulture,
