Home > About Us
The Flamborough Horticultural Society was founded in May 1939 and we look forward to celebrating our 80th birthday this May in 2019.
The mission of the Flamborough Horticultural Society is to encourage interest and involvement in horticulture through civic improvement, preservation, exhibitions, the distribution of plant materials and regular instruction pertaining to the theory and practice of horticulture.
After our birth, thirty-two years later in 1971, we chose the Geranium (Pelargonium) as our emblem and we proudly display our crest at the front of the room at each meeting.
OUR MAIN VENUE: St. Thomas the Apostle Church 715 Centre Road, Waterdown Ontario. We change this up every once in a while and meet in interesting locations. Check our Website or Facebook for our meeting venue.
MEETING INFO: The Flamborough Horticultural Society holds meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of each month starting at 7:00pm. Our meetings start with our Fellowship & Refreshments, followed by a ‘Short’ Business Discussion, and then our knowledgeable, entertaining guest speakers & demonstrations.
We also have a Question & Answer period, Share the Wealth Draw and Fun Flower Shows with Member judging
In July, August and December there are no meetings, so we may spend time with our families and enjoy our garden spaces.
All ages over 15 are welcome
