Tottenham & District Horticultural Society
We were incorporated September 1974, we are celebrating our 43rd Anniversary in 2017. Our Society Flower is the Forget-Me-Not . We are very proud to play a vital role in the Community by planting and maintain many town gardens. We also provide a venue where gardeners of all levels can meet, learn, and enjoy the company of fellow gardeners. A beautiful hanging banner was designed and created by various members and is now proudly displayed at all our general meetings, as well traveling to all regional and provincial O.H.A conventions and seminars, where we are represented as a member of the Ontario Horticultural Association in District 16. The history of achievements over our 43 years is quite impressive, due to the work of Society members whose only desire was to make Tottenham a beautiful place to be and to instill some of that pride in our young "blossoming" gardeners.
Gardens presently maintained by the Society are:
Glimmer Memorial Gardens, Tottenham Welcome Signs at North & South Ends of Town, Tottenham Community Centre, Tottenham Post Office, Tottenham Fire Hall, Royal Canadian Legion & Tottenham Train Station
