Stouffville Horticultural Society
Founded in 1924 and still growing, we are celebrating our 92nd anniversary in 2016. You are welcome to join us!
Our meetings take place at Latcham Hall, 8 Park Drive, Stouffville. Park Drive runs south off Main Street, and is at the first traffic light east of the clock tower. There is ample parking in the lot across the street. Meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted, with refreshments available following the speaker's presentation.
Yearly membership is $20/single, $30/family. Non-members $5/meeting.
Meetings in June, July, and September include competitive flower shows for members. There is also a photography contest for members, with photos submitted at the April meeting and judged prior to May meeting when all entries are displayed and winners announced. The Happy Place front garden contest takes place in July 2016, with a celebration of recognized gardens at the September 2016 meeting.
