Grand Bend & Area Horticultural Society Welcomes you!

The primary undertaking of our Society is the beautification of our town. Our purpose is to provide a forum for education and gardening. 


The Horticultural Society plants and maintains planters and flower beds, along with watering and weeding that never ends, at the following locations:


Service Club Sign at the north end of town

Planter tub in front of Bank of Montreal

Planter at the Fire hall

Canadian Legion

Municipal Office

Planters at the north end of the bridge

Centennial Park

20 planters at Optimist Children’s Park

Planter Box at Crescent Street and Gill Road

Lighthouse Signs on Hwy 81 and 21 south

Sphere Garden on River Road


Our volunteers work a few thousand hours each year to keep everything growing and looking great. We all appreciate the many comments about how the plants and flowers brighten up our town.


The Horticultural Society holds social and educational meetings on the last Monday of each month. Guest speakers cover many gardening topics, planting problems and offer new ideas to plan our gardens.  We also address environmental issues.

Over the years, we have organized bus trips to different locations, hosted garden walks, plant sales and home and garden tours.


If you have any suggestions or a program that you think would enhance our community, please contact our President Regine Switzer by email:  ; by mail: P.O. Box 706, Grand Bend, Ontario, N0M1T0 or phone: 519-238-5165
